On this video tutorial photographer Glyn Dewis shows how to use Color Look Up Tables (LUTs) in Photoshop.
Most of us think of using LUTs in video editing software but they can also be used in Photoshop (both for stills and video editing). The idea is that you can add different coloring effects (more than one), save them and load them at any time or use existing or downloaded sets to give your image a different look.
This might be similar in some ways to presets and even actions but there are some differences as Dewis explains (which might or might not matter to you – but it is good to have more options).
This actually isn’t the first time that we have been looking at LUTs in Photoshop. You can also check out Jesús Ramirez (from PTC) video on this subject.
For anybody who has no idea what LUTs are and why use them – we simply must bring you this bonus video again (it is just so well made – and explains the basic concept behind LUTs).
