Color adjustment - more green
I modified the color on a photo and I need to do it again, but I can't figure out what I did the first time. Attached are before and after photos. The before is what I have to work with (a much smaller resolution that what I am really working with, but colors are the same) and the after is the desired result. The leaves with the red arrows pointing to them are much greener in the after than in the before. Can you reproduce this and tell me what I did?

RE: Color adjustment - more green
I have played with all of these, to no avail.
Some detail on what happened. The camera gives an orf file (Olympus raw format) and jpg file. I started with the jpg file and got the 'after' result. I think all I had done was Colors -> Auto -> Color Enhance. I liked the result, but I needed greater resolution, so I converted the orf to tiff and then did the same operation to the tiff, but it didn't not give the same result With the tiff, it barely changed. Is there a reason for this? I also tried export the tiff to jpg and then performing the same operation there, but ... nothing.

This is what I tried, if you use these settings you'll get a similar result

1. Colors > Brightness/Contrast
" - 34" (brightness)
"10" (contrast) adjust to match details in leaf viens (without being greyed/washed out)

2. Colors > Hue-Saturation
(you'll bring down just the yellow channel) "Y"
Hue "0"
Lightness " - 33"
Saturation "32"
(adjust lightness & saturation to match your original, it doesn't have to be these settings exactly, just close)

Good luck!
