Introduction

In order to make your 3D LUTs appear in the drop-down list of the Load 3D LUT option in Adobe Photoshop, you have to copy your LUTs into a specific location on your hard drive.

  1. Adobe Photoshop poses a limit on the number of 3D LUTs that can appear in the drop-down list. If you have a lot of 3D LUTs, not all of them will appear in the list.
  2. More importantly, since we’ll have to copy the files into the Adobe Photoshop installation, these 3D LUTs may be overwritten once you update your version of Adobe Photoshop to a newer one. If you don’t have a backup of your 3D LUTs, these LUTs may get lost forever.

Mac

  1. Extract the LUTs from the downloadable .zip file.
  2. Select the 3D LUTs you’d like to copy. Make sure you’re copying the 3D LUTs only and not the folder they’re in.
  3. Copy the 3D LUTs in the following location: Applications > Adobe Photoshop CC 201X > Presets > 3DLUTs
