Not only can you create looks with Lookup Tables, or LUTs, you can also create looks with gradient maps. How do you create a look with a gradient map that is not overbearing? In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to use gradient maps and blend modes to simulate sought after looks.
- Let's switch gears and revisit Gradient Maps a bit.…I want to show you some of the flexibility…for quickly creating a Look.…Let's choose File Open, and in this case…another street image.…We'll use this prayer wall from Tokyo.…What I'd like to do is change the Look…of this image very quickly.…I'll add the Gradient Map, and I like this inverted image.…It's a bit fun, but a little strong.…You'll find from that pop-up list several other choices…that could be quickly applied.…
Some of these are quite obnoxious,…and others are a bit better.…Remember, clicking the Gradient will bring up the Editor,…a process which we'll explore a little bit later.…From this dialogue you can also click on the pop-up list,…and you'll find other options.…For example, Noise Sample is a great way…to introduce quick tints to an image.…And these use a different style of Gradient.…I like this one a lot.…You'll notice that you can also click the Randomize button…to come up with different new Gradients very quickly.…
This one feels a bit more fun.…
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.
