Creative Actions Panel: Colour Grades Guide

In this post we are looking at each of the options in the Colour Grades menu.

Each one provides a single Curves adjustment layer that has been designed to give your images a certain look. Some were designed with specific types of images in mind, but many are universal too – so make sure you spend time experimenting with these!

Check out the video for some examples of images with each of the colour grades being applied one by one to compare their effect.

Below are some further examples of each colour grade being applied to a couple of types of image (a portrait and a landscape).
