How to Extract the Color Grade From an Image and Apply It to Another

Few things can more dramatically impact the mood and feel of an image than the color grade. We all have favorite color grades, whether from photos or movies. Thankfully, Photoshop has some nifty built-in tools that allow you to easily copy the color grade from one image and apply it to another, and this excellent video tutorial will show you how to do just that. 

Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this great video tutorial will show you how to copy the color grade from one image and apply it to another. Color grades often get overlooked, but they are the sort of finishing touch that can really elevate a photo and help you develop a recognizable personal style. The thing to remember, particularly when working with color, is that less is usually more. It is very easy to go overboard with a color grade, especially because many of Photoshop's tools produce big changes with just a slight move of a slider. There is a fine line between polished and garish, and it is generally better to err on the side of the former until you feel really comfortable with the process. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.
