Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2011 11:43 AM (in response to ishdisturber)Use any adjustment block you want that achieves you desired effect (about 4 of them) and either brush it in or brush it out depending on which one is easier. Or.. just use the quick brush called saturation.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2011 11:43 AM (in response to rwboyer)Thanks for your reply. I have tried to go to the "Color" brick and clicked on the settings gear. Under that I selected "Brush Color Away". Nothing happened. Is this what you meant to do?
I have also used the saturation quick brush, but I want the opposite effect. This was achieved much simpler (for me anyway) in Aperture 2 by using the "desaturate" brush in the "Dodge and Burn" plugin.

Plus of course you need to have made some adjustments in the Color brick in the first place, or you will be painting away something that's identical anyway...

Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2011 11:44 AM (in response to Ian Wood)Interesting! And a bit strange.
So you actually desaturate by using the color picker on a region, then cranking the saturation down, and then brushing that color in on the affected area.
I think allowing negative values on the saturation brush might be more intuitive... maybe it just takes a little brain wrangling.8-Core Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
