Quickly saturate/desaturate colors in InDesign.

indesigncolorpaletteThis is another handy Adobe tip from Brian Wood, Director of Training at eVolve Computer Graphics Training in Seattle. This tip works in both Adobe InDesign and Illustrator CS/CS2.

If you want to quickly saturate or desaturate a color in the color palette, hold down Shift while dragging a color slider.

Both InDesign and Illustrator adjust the color sliders in tandem, keeping the values in proportion to each other. Easily giving you a richer or lighter version of your selected color.
