Did you know that you can apply one-click color effects to your photos? It is very easy to do it using the Color Lookup Adjustment Layer. I applied some of these effects in this photo of a San Telmo abandoned house and this one from Villa Ocampo (both in Argentina) in my travel blog on IvBeenThere.

In fact, it’s so easy that even an absolute beginner can apply beautiful color effects just by following this short tutorial.

Without getting into too much technical details, a color look-up table (CLUT) is a mechanism, used mainly in video or photography, to transform a range of input colors into another range of colors. While difficult to create, the Color Lookup Tables are very easy to apply and Adobe has provided a nice amount of pre loaded tables for you to use on your photos.
