HALD LUTs for deeper skintones

I’d like to contribute these two HALD LUTs that can deepen skin tones, make them livelier.
Can be used at lower Opacity/Strength to one’s liking.

If RT could support 3DL or CUBE formats, this can be made much more portable.

Enjoy:)

If you share them in cube it could be used by darktable, gmic and probably more.
Thanks!

haldclut , 3D lut and cube (adobe)lut are just the same thing, just different format.
I think that some GMIC guru can provide the command to transform the haldclut in Cube.
edit : I think Gmic and Darktable use natively Hald Clut

If you don’t mind, I’ve added your CLUTs in the G’MIC filter “Colors / Colors Presets”, in your own new category “Michael Ezra”.

Screenshot:

EDIT: in G’MIC, every CLUT is (lossly) compressed to save space (we already provide 864 different CLUTs in the plug-in), so the result of the G’MIC filter may be slightly different than using your original HaldCLUT (thus not so perceptible hopefully).

These LUTs can deepen not only the skin tones:)

Thank you very much! :slight_smile:

You are welcome. Honestly, I’ve been trying to get this for years, but yesterday it just hit me… figured it out in 20 minutes.
