How to color grade images using Photoshop

In this Photoshop tutorial, we are going to Color Grade an image in Photoshop.

Open the image you would like to color grade. Then Duplicate the Layer.

Right Click on the image Layer> Then click Duplicate Layer




Name the layer Color Grade. Then click OK.

Now you need to add a color lookup adjustment layer.

Select the Color Grade Layer.

Then click the Adjustment Layer icon.

Then click Color Lookup.

The Color Lookup Properties windows will open. Now we can color grade the image.

From the 3DLut file drop down select one of the preset Luts.

If you select TensionGreen this will give your image that Matrix movie look.

If you select Teal and Orange this will give your image the Transformers movie look.

IMPORTANT: If you select a Lut and the effect is too strong you can lower the opacity.
