I bought a LUTs Pack, how do I use them?

Modified on Thu, 20 Jul, 2023 at 11:04 PM

Creative Magic Colour LUTs are provided in the standard .cube format that can be used in virtually all professional colour correction software in the industry.

Quick start instructions about how to use them in Phootoshop are given here, but further examples and more in-depth workflows can easily be found searching for ".cube LUT" and the name of the software.

If you need help or require a particular format, or if you have any doubt or question please open a new ticket at this address https://creativemagic.freshdesk.com/support/tickets/new and we’ll do our best to help you.

Happy Colouring!

Use inside Photoshop  LUTs in Photoshop can be applied on any image loading them in a Color Lookup Adjustment Layer.

With the layer selected, go to the Properties Tab, select the 3DLUT File radio button and Load 3D LUT… 

in the dropdown. The file explorer window will open and you will be able to select the LUT file you want to use in the adjustment.

You can also make them already available in the Color Lookup for an easy selection and switch.

Simply move or copy the folders with your LUTs file inside:

/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop {version1}/Presets/3DLUTs on Windows

/Applications/Adobe Photoshop {version1}/Presets/3DLUTs on Mac

If you already had Photoshop open, restart the app.

The LUTs will now appear in the same dropdown in the properties window and can be selected directly.

Once you have loaded the LUT in the Color Lookup, you can always adjust the intensity by changing the opacity of the adjustment layer to fine-tune the effect.

1. {version} varies depending on which version of the application you have installed.

As an example, if you have Photoshop 2023 on Mac the complete path will be: /Applications/Adobe Photoshop 2023/Presets/3DLUTs
