  • fill or opacity with Color Lookup?

    Hi,
    In some tutorials, after adding Color Lookup layer, they lowered "fill" instead of "opacity". Why? there're no such thing like text in this layer.

    Thanks.

    And this is why I tell it like it is...

    Fill affects numbers before they are calculated (I'm talking color values).

    Opacity affects numbers after they are calculated.

    In most cases it makes no difference, but obviously it does to them.

      Thanks for fast response. A little confused here: so which is better, before or after calculation ?

        There is no better, it does different things, and the difference based on the blending mode rather than the layer.

        I still haven't got into the whole "3D LUT" thing, as I am yet to see it replace particular layers affecting particular things, but once it's properly integrated into PS, I might give it a whirl.

          Color Replacement
          by midnitejam
          Hi everyone,
          I have two snaps and they have different exposures/white balances. How can I replace the overall cast of #1 with that of #2?
          I suspect there is a "quick step" to accomplish this. example, Image/Adjustments/Replace Color or Match Color; but I haven't been able to...

          local color correcting
          by WandererX
          I'm having a little bit of a problem with my local color management and was wondering if someone could give me some advice. Couple of questions here. First, if I'm dodging out a dark area on the skin and one layer doesn't get the tone light enough would I add a second layer and dodge with two layers?...

          Auto fill in layer bounding box with color?
          by Navstar
          I would be helpful for me l if there was a script that would take the bounding box for selected layers and fill it with a block of color. Like a "Redaction script"

          I sometimes need to send test files other people, but they shouldn't see the actual content of some of the layers...
