This is to enhance the colors of the image especially taken with low to mid end digital cameras, generally suffering from poor color saturation.

Typical adj. layer with hue/saturation would result in ugly artifacts. This method might be a better alternative.

Enriches the colors in otherwise bland images without the accompanying artifacts.
