Matching colour and grades

Good day and hello everyone,

Just started a job to retouch 18 or so images. the client is very specific and has processed out low res jpg from capture one with the grade he is happy with..

now Im more than happy to tweak this and tweak that till I match it accurately. but I was just wondering if there are any interesting workflows out there for doing this type of stuff alot faster? I remember once seeing a plugin for either after effects or nuke which matched shots fairly well... cant for the life of me remember the name though.

anyway any help appreciated

Re: smashingmag - Blimey, that should be time saving tips for when the end result doesn't matter much. Sometimes you just have to put the hours in!

Re: Matching colour and grades

Thanks shumski, that technique will help me for other stuff actually but it's not quite what im looking for.....

breezing through the forums I came across this link

the address discusses using a plugin for gimp "GMIC" which looks brilliant and is exactly what im looking for. I installed gimp and the plugin but for some reason it wont work... tried two of the latest versions of gimp 2.6 and 2.7 however ideally it would be alot more efficient to be able to do this in PS, even manually...

can anybody describe how to do this in PS manually??

GMIC can be found here and the filter effect is titled "transfer color"
