How do I find out about saturation in color?

Direction from Hue

No, this is not a movie set tutorial - The neutral is considered the center of the color wheel. A hue (color) gets its relative direction from the neutral. For example, some red apples are redder than other red apples. The less red the apple, the closer it is to the neutral (gray, white or black) in the color wheel.

This position is called "saturation." The redder the apple, the more saturated it is.
