Boats& LUTs

Post by minniev »

I've been fooling around with LUTs today, so wanted to share. This pre-dawn picture, taken in Wiccasset ME, was very blue, but taking out the blue made it kinda gray since there wasn't much color, so I added a LUT in Luminar. Share your thoughts and If you use LUTs I'd like for you talk about how and what.

A pleasant image minniev...since I haven't seen the blah before I've no comparison but your finished product is nice, seems a touch green for my taste..add another under abstract called "sienna-blue" you might like it...LUT's are really just pre-sets..you can make your own and export with your name and generally save as a cube file..then copy it to the preset folder in Ps called 3Dluts...you have to close and open Ps for it to show up in the list..... They are handy and quick and can make a big difference to your image..when I want to stylize and image I usually do it manually with say curves and blend-if or some combination of adjustment layers and such. Have fun there are a bunch of them

Thanks Frank. I’ll take a look. I have used the ones in PS, but not many there that I can see to choose between. I thought I loaded some more but somehow that process didn’t work. I also have an action that I think does similar by adding toning via gradient, then you adjust it with the gradient sliders and the mysterious (to me) blend-if sliders.

I think I need to become more familiar with this - if nothing else, seems like a filter process that can beautify and unify at the same time.

The unify part is what I usually use it for, to help with composites. But I don’t know what I’m doing yet. Frank has mentioned making our own. I hope he’ll tell us how!

so just add any adjustment layer or layers above the original image…make some slider changes and select them all..go to file..export..color lookup tables..generally I just use check cube..ok..name it test and make sure you know where you are saving it…delete or turn off the layers you selected in Ps..open color look up adjustment layer..load 3Dluts…you should see your custom lut named test..open..click it on and off to see your changes...

Thank ya. If I can figure out a way to try it I'll share back and let you tell me what I did wrong.

So progressive, I didn't know we were using LUTs now! S-
