LUT Generator

I found this interesting IWLTBAP LUT generator. It allows you to make LUT files from eg. lightroom edits or basically from any editor. As the website says “Important note: A Look-Up Table (LUT) can only affect colors, contrast, brightness, gamma, etc. So you can’t add grain, noise reduction, vignetting, sharpen or any other dynamic effects.” By converting the edit to LUT you can use it in video editor like DaVinci Resolve or Premier but Photoshop also supports LUTs as adjustment layers. Naturally you cannot adjust individual sliders anymore as you could do if you would use smart objects and camera raw but adjustment layers are more lightweight and many times more convenient to use. So if you use eg. same colouring time after time this might be a viable option also in photoshop. For eg. pictures I used this PSDesire “Aqua and Brown” tutorial in youtube. I can’t tell the difference between camera raw version and the LUT version. You can download the LUT from here.

Map for Fullscreen Galleria

Just finished map support Fullscreen Galleria. Now if photograph has gps info, title and description panel shows a globe icon. Icon opens a map that shows where the photograph was taken. By clicking the photograph below you can see it in action. Implementation uses  OpenLayers and OpenStreetMap. At least where I live OpenStreetMap seems to have more detail like bigger and smaller paths. That’s good since I usually have my camera with me when wandering those smaller routes. Nicer to see photo near some path (and how to get there) than in the middle of a big green blob.
