LUTs (70 tutorials)

LUTs (Look Up Tables) are mathematical transforms for manipulating digital images. A LUT can effect the brightness, saturation, and hue of Red, Green, and Blue pixels in a predefined manner. LUTs are usually defined by their intended purpose. And that purpose can be creative (to create a cool Look), technical (to precisely calibrate a reference display), or a mix of both (to precisely recreate a Look from on-set, using a specific starting point for the image). For this reason LUTs are a generally popular - and confusing - color correction topic. The Insights listed on this page all deal with LUTs in one manner or another. If you want to export, import, create, or modify a LUT then you're likely to find your answer on this page. Are you new to Look Up Tables (LUTs)?
