question - Re: one more if permitted

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.

duplicate background
select the copy
image> adjustment> hue and saturation

increase the saturation to around 60-70 (image will look to be absolutely thrashy)
filter > noise > median (select around 6)
filter > blur > gausssian blur (select around 4)
set the blend mode to color
dial the opacity as per the liking.

This enriches the colors in otherwise bland images without the
accompanying artifacts.

Interesting technique...

So you need both Noise > Median & Blur > Gaussian blur?
