NEW PictureFX Lut Update – PictureFX Classic Chrome Gold

The new PictureFX Classic Chrome Gold LUT was created by combining an existing HaldClut (PNG) – namely my PFX Classic Chrome – and Color Mapping of very specific color oriented photos – in this case a photo by Lisa from Conwy UK (instagram – Lis welshie.wonders) Golden Textile @ https://www.pexels.com/ – Thank you Lisa !

The technique : I used RawTherapee and Darktable.
Rawtherapee for creating the special HaldClut based on my PFX Classic Chrome presets & Darktable for adding the Golden tone via Color Mapping.
Converted via IWLTBAP to 3DLut .Cube

Format : 3DLut 64x64x64 .Cube – usable in most image editing programs.

Very important :
To obtain the best result it is sometimes necessary to adjust the strength, but also the “Blend Mode”.
Depending on the photo and/or the subject, this can cause very large differences.
Below a few examples, each time at 100% strength but a different Blend Mode.

Blend Mode : Normal

Blend Mode : Lightness

Blend Mode : Overlay

As you can see, three completely different results, and for an even more subtle effect, try adjusting the strength in your editor as well.

This film simulation can (currently) only be downloaded via Fresh Luts, and therefore only as 3DLut. De Lut is completely free to download and use in any way you wish.
