Let's say you have been scrolling through your Instagram feed, spot an amazing image from a photographer that inspires you, and you think to yourself "I wonder how they managed to get that specific look and feel to their image with that specific colour grade".
Well, wonder no more! There is a way you can literally copy a colour grade from one image to another if you have a basic knowledge of how to use Adobe Photoshop!
Colour grades, regardless of the program that was used to originally edit the image, consist of a variety of tonal values and colours within the shadows, mid-tones and highlights. Thankfully, inside of Adobe Photoshop, you have the ability to create an average colour and contrast value that lies inside of each.
In order to replicate this tutorial, you will need Adobe Photoshop CS6 or later, a good understanding of using the Layers Panel, Swatches, Selection Tools, as well as several adjustments such as Curves and Colour Range.
