JELSTUDIO's SkinTone and portrait-exposure 'Helper-LUT'

Two LUTs that help with setting white-balance and exposure

The LUTs use 'false-color' (Green for correct, blue for low, red for high) to make it easier to manually set skin-tone HUEs and skin-exposure level

Apply the SkinTone-LUT after your white-balance tool, then adjust temp and tint until you get green color where you want proper skin-tone

Apply the SkinExposure-LUT after your exposure-balance tool, then adjust exposure until you get green color where you want proper exposure (Avoid red color, which are clipped high-lights)

Technically these are CUBE and HALDC LUTs (For photo and video), which are compatible with software such as PhotoReactor, Luminar, Rawtherapee, Davinci Resolve, Photoshop, and most other software that can use CUBE and HALDC 3D-LUTs

There are two LUTs for skin-tone (Warm and cool) and 2 LUTs for exposure (Studio-portrait and mid-tone-gray)
(In the demo-video the 'warm skin-tone' and 'studio-portrait exposure' LUTs are used)

using the LUT

Some key-points:
  • 3D LUT-formats: CUBE, Hald Clut
  • Manual user-installation of LUT-files (no automatic .exe installation)
  • Password-protected zip-file with LUT-files inside (An email with the password will be automatically sent upon purchase)
  • These LUTs are not 'look-LUTs' or 'grading-LUTs', but 'helper-LUTs'. The user still have to adjust white-balance and exposure manually. These LUTs simply make it easier to reach the generally pleasing target-values
  • Two demo-LUTs included in the download so you can test if the LUTs work in your editor before buying
