How Hue Affects an Image

Hue An image is composed of lots of small colors. Together they look like a picture. To change the hue of an image we change the hue of each small color. Have you ever seen someone with green lips? You are about to.

First, we start with the image on the right.

Then, for each image we increase the hue of all the small colors in the image by the same amount. Each image below shows an increase a little farther around the hue circle. Look at her hat as you go from image to image. Notice how its color goes through the colors of the hue circle as we increase the hues.
