Libraries are a great way to organize your gradient maps from the Adobe Photoshop interface. Can you create a folder for custom created gradient map presets so they can be easily accessed in the future? In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to add custom gradient map presets to a library in Adobe Photoshop.
- You saw me load up libraries earlier of gradient maps.…It's important to understand what's happening here.…By default, any new gradients that you add…are only stored in a temporary preference file.…For example, if I were to go to my gradient map folder,…and take a look at these three that I created,…as soon as I switch to another library,…these would be permanently lost.…As such, it's pretty important that you save these.…So choosing Save Gradients will create a new set,…and you could choose to store it, by default,…in the current location.…
Now there are different places that you could put these,…but it's likely going to store them in the correct place.…If not, you can go ahead and load these up…to your Creative Cloud folder, as you learned before,…or any other folder on your system.…I'll just put these to the desktop right now…and call this Test Gradients.…And now they're stored.…So if I go in here and switch to another set,…like one I've created,…those load up.…
But if I needed to, I can go back and load,…
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.
