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 Photoshop? 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 Photoshop.
- Why don't we jump right in and show you…a LUT or a lookup table in action.…I'll do this first inside of Adobe Photoshop.…In Photoshop you can choose file open…and navigate to an image that you'd like to work with.…I'm going to select an image here that's got a good…range of colors.…Let's work with this one here…from the desert.…It's a RAW file…so I'll click open.…I've already adjusted the image a bit inside the DNG file…and saved my recommended settings…but you're welcome to experiment.…
If you'd like to adjust the color balance slightly…until the image looks properly neutralized…feel free to do so.…You can also explore using things like the…white balance dropper…to set a new white balance,…although it may be a bit tricky…as there's not a lot of neutral gray areas in this image.…I'll just take that beck…to the starting point…and dial in a small change.…All right. That looks pretty good,…so I'll click open object.…
The image is now handed off to Photoshop.…Let's choose window workspace essentials.…Then I'll reset the essentials workspace…
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.
