Tip#104: Match elements from different photos ūüć≠ in one click

1) Bring backdrop into MagicTints as color reference by clicking a Screen Shot 2021-07-20 at 9.00.52 PM down arrow on the toolbar
2) Select another object (image, layer, group of images) and click “Apply”

The elements will precisely color match (keeping contrast etc.) Apply to illustrations, 3D renders, photos. Works in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign plugin.
Also works in a MagicTints Desktop App on macOS and Windows – just use transparent PNGs for objects.

3)* You can use the same technique in video software like AfterEffects, Premiere or Final Cut Pro – by applying LUT exported from MagicTints

Tip#101: Create your own LUT from 1 target image for video/animation/primary color grading

Create your very own, precise LUT in ‚ĚĖ one click ‚ĚĖ, from a reference image in Adobe Photoshop. Then use it to color grade any footage or imagery in other software – for 3D, video, primary color grading, animation, in any post production.

  1. Select a color reference image in MagicTints
  2. Click a button on the bottom toolbar and save .cube or .png. One click!

MagicTints exports LUT in any size. You can specify arbitrary LUT size in settings – for example 16x16x16, 17x17x17, or even 128x128x18.
