Saturation in the Adobe Lightroom / Adobe Photoshop world controls the intensity of a color on the scale of pastel to neon.
There are a number of tools inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic, and the cloud-based versions of the Adobe Lightroom application, that we can use to increase the levels of color saturation in our images.
