What does it look like for a LookupTable, or LUT, to be applied to an image? How do you apply a LUT to an image in Adobe Lightroom? Can you manipulate the LUT once it is applied? In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through the steps of applying a LUT to an image inside Adobe Lightroom.
- Let's talk about using lookup tables inside of Lightroom.…Right now, the use of lookup tables in Lightroom…is a bit limited.…In fact, you're going to need to jump over…into a tool such as Photoshop to apply them…and then jump back.…However, there is a third party ecosystem that exists,…which we'll explore a little bit later.…And I have been informed that this is a work in progress.…Adobe assures me that lookup tables…are gonna make it into more Adobe products,…so I'm raising it here as something to keep an eye on.…
To start, I'll launch Lightroom.…You can use your existing Lightroom library…or hold down the Option or Alt key…when you launch Lightroom to create a new library.…I'm gonna make a new empty catalog here,…and I'm gonna call this LUT Workflow…and click Create.…Lightroom will now open up…and create a new series of images.…Let's import some photos into Lightroom.…I'll go to the Library module…and click the Import button.…

In this course, Rich Harrington demystifies lookup tables (LUTs) and shows how to use them with Photoshop, Lightroom, and other Adobe CC applications. He also shows how to use gradient maps—where tints are based on the luminance values in the image—to add creative color and noise to images, and how to organize, store, and share these assets with other Creative Cloud programs and other photo and video professionals.
