Choose File > Import Photos and Video and then add the sample photo, or use your own.

Fall nature scene with lake, large rocks, and trees with red foliage appears grainy with muted colors.

In the Develop module, click the tabs to adjust Hue, Saturation, or Luminance individually. Or, click All to see the HSL settings in one view.

The Develop module has individual color sliders under Hue, Saturation, and Luminance.

Experiment with the color sliders for Hue, Saturation, and Luminance settings in the HSL/Color panel to give the colors a more pronounced look.

Four versions of the autumn scene with adjusted colors show the trees with brown, orange, yellow, and red leaves.

Not sure which HSL sliders to use? Choose the Targeted Adjustment tool and drag in the area of the photo you want to edit. Lightroom Classic moves the appropriate sliders as needed.

The Targeted Adjustment tool is used to adjust only the leaves in a small section of the autumn scene.

See how you can bring out the best in a scene with a few color adjustments.
