Ever wondered how to create your very own LUTs using only Photoshop? Look no further, Unmesh Dinda at PiXimperfect just released the perfect short and easy to follow tutorial for you.
LUTs have been used in videography for a while but few talked about it in the photography world until recent years. They are a wonderful tool to use to color grade a set of images the same way with simply one layer or give the same look to an image and a video clip. Some companies, such as Lutify.me, use this technique to offer people the presets that work no matter what app people are using, but it’s also very easy to create your own LUTs if you have access to Photoshop.
In the video above, Dinda shows you exactly how you can create yours in a matter of seconds. He even goes one step further to demonstrate where you can store your custom LUT to make it show in the Photoshop Color Lookup Table default drop-down menu, so you won’t ever have to search for it in your folders.
If you have never played around with LUTs before, this is a great way to start by creating your own and start playing around with it. It can definitely help save time your own post-processing workflow, and the fact that it is a cross-platform thing is fantastic.
