Color grading your images is much more than adjusting sliders. You can also apply Lookup Tables (LUTs) or gradient maps to get the desired result. How do you use LUTs and gradient maps in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom? In this course, author Richard Harrington demonstrates how to color grade images with LUTs and gradient maps.
- I hope you enjoyed this exploration…of look up tables and gradient maps.…These two similar technologies…really unlock a lot of options.…Whether you're looking to color correct…your footage, repair something like…a particular camera issue or color space,…or just get a bit creative it's fast and easy.…What I particularly love about this technology…is how easy it is to collaborate with…both other applications and other users.…The ability to take a series of complex adjustments…and encapsulate that into a single effect.…
Or to take color and tone and remap…that by using blending modes.…The use of gradient maps and look up tables…really will speed up your workflow.…What I'm really excited about is Adobe…continues to weave this technology…into more and more of their applications.…And in deep and meaningful ways.…I suspect that you'll see look up tables,…looks, these sorts of effects and adjustments…becoming a standard.…I think this is a great part of your workflow…and with this sort of functionality…you might be surprised at how quick and easy it is…
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.
