Use the Detail by Chroma effect to enhance details in an area of a scene that has or doesn’t have a particular color. For example, objects in scenes with low light can appear flat and textureless, but with Detail by Chroma, you can target an object by its color and adjust the contrast between light and dark areas to emphasize the object. You can also invert the effect and target areas that don’t match a particular color range.
