LUT files are fantastic presets that can be used in many different photo-editing applications. They are easy to use in Photoshop, but require you to manually add any third-party LUT files you have downloaded to your computer. In this short tutorial I show you how to add and import LUT files to use them over and over again inside of Photoshop CC.

Locations for importing LUT files into Photoshop:


  • Applications > Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 > Presets > 3DLUTs
  • Note: Make sure you are in the main computer hard-drive (NOT the user level)


  • C: > Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit) > Presets > 3DLUTs
