Saturation is the intensity of color in your image. If you slide the slider to the left (to 0), the image will become black and white, and if you slide it to the right (2.00) it will become fully saturated.

Brightness is the darkness or lightness in your image. If you drag the brightness slider all the way to the left your image will become totally black, if dragged to the right it will become completely white. You should only need to adjust the brightness of an image a little bit, especially if the photo has a correct exposure.
Contrast is the difference between the lights and darks of your image. A higher contrast will have darker darks and lighter lights. A lower contrast or no contrast will make the tones in the image appear the same.

The exposure is how much light is exposed to the film or sensor when taking a photo. If the exposure is too high, the image will be very bright with very little darks. If the exposure is too low, the image will be darker. You can adjust this using the Exposure Adjust filter.
Gamma Adjust leaves blacks and whites unchanged, while adjusting the mid-point colors of your image. A high gamma level can create a washed out appearance to an image, but a small adjustment usually creates a pleasing result.
The Hue Adjust filter adjusts the color of your image, leaving black, white, and gray alone.
There is a dial to adjust the color of your image. Think of the dial as a compass. If the dial is placed south, it will show your original image, to the west and it will become red, north for blue, and east for green.

White Point Adjust
The White Point Adjust filter determines what "white" is in your photo. Light isn't usually really white. It can have tints of yellow, orange, or blue. The true color of white depends on the lighting when the photo was taken. For best results choose a natural color that is close to white.
