Adjusting brightness changes the overall lightness or darkness of your webcam. When you increase brightness, the entire camera becomes brighter, while reducing brightness makes it darker.

Adjusting contrast changes the difference between the lightest and darkest areas of your camera. When you increase contrast, the brighter areas of the camera become brighter and the darker areas become darker, making the camera look more dynamic and vivid. Conversely, reducing contrast makes the bright areas less bright and the dark areas less dark, resulting in a flatter and less detailed camera image.

Adjusting hue changes the overall color balance of your camera. The hue is a specific attribute of color that indicates its position on the color spectrum, such as red, blue, or green. When you adjust the hue, you shift the colors in the camera toward a different part of the color spectrum.

Adjusting saturation changes the intensity or vibrancy of colors in your camera. When you increase saturation, the colors become more intense and vibrant, while reducing saturation makes the colors more muted and less intense.

Adjusting transparency changes the degree to which your camera source is visible or allows other elements to show through it. When you decrease transparency, the camera source becomes more see-through.
