Have a Lookup Table, or LUT, that you like but would like to modify so it better creates the style you want? You can use third-party software to make those modifications. How does it work? In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to change the settings of a LUT with third-party software.
- If you're an Adobe Creative Cloud customer,…you may have access to SpeedGrade,…and that's a great tool for working with LUTs…and modifying them and saving them,…but there are a wealth of other tools.…A simple web search will take you…to a few other applications.…One of those is called Lattice,…and Lattice makes it easy for you…to load in a lookup table and evaluate it.…This is really a tool for conversion, so for example,…let's say I wanted to open up a lookup table.…
File, Open up LUT.…And let's navigate to one of those ones that I just created.…You can use any file here, but here's that one I made…in Lightroom, and I'll click Open.…There's the look.…I can see the after state of that…cool blue look that I just made.…But I can modify this a bit.…For example, I can take a look at this…and isolate just the contrast adjustment…or just the color adjustment,…and you see that it latches that in a bit.…
Or create a single gray-scale image…that averages it out or goes off of just one of the channels…to create a strong black and white look.…
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.
