Saturation adjustment

Color saturation could be adjusted with computer program like Photopaint,  Adobe Photoshop or others. The file size increases when color saturation is amplified up to reasonable value. The effect of saturation and computer correction could be compared here. Three different color settings are used to make sample pictures showed in the table on left side. For left samples, the saturation is set in the camera, and in right one the unsaturated original picture is adjusted to +10, and + 20 steps Photopaint saturation value.
