    this is a fantastic tutorial – I've subscribed. One thing I would change is the music – I'd rather no music than the current background choice.

    How do you add this chart to Lightroom?

  • Reply VladCherrylacK January 29, 2017 at 6:17 am

    how do you save the photo without the chart? i love your metode 🙂

  • Reply jolo February 5, 2017 at 2:19 am

    This is amazing! My only question is what happens next after I put the chart on the photo? How do I adjust afterwards? Because from the video it looks like your cursor is on the photo itself and not on the point curve in the sidebar.

    Thanks for another great tutorial. You should see about doing some of this tone Curve and Color Grading instruction on CreativeLive! You do it very well.

  • Reply scothu August 21, 2017 at 8:59 pm

    if you have to open the picture in photoshop to overlay the chart, then wouldn't you just edit the curves in photoshop as well?

  • Reply kraskp August 22, 2017 at 7:42 pm

    Really helpful, thanks!

    This was so helpful. Thank you so much Dennys!

  • Reply Tomas Hudolin October 13, 2017 at 11:28 am

    I'm doing something wrong. I open my image in PS, insert the chart and save it. Then when I set my color and want to sync if with the rest of pictures, the colors are wrong. I have set ProPhoto for external editing and when I'm setting the color on saved tiff, the result doesn't look similar on dng files. What is wrong? Thanks.

  • Reply Javier Gómez February 8, 2018 at 6:15 pm

    Great video Denny! Could you teach us how to achieve this effect to our photos: The lights, shadows, colors, sharp and skin effect? I proved several methods but I couldn't match them together perfectly . I don't want to copy the style just to know how its done, PLEASE! Thank you!

  • Reply LProds February 16, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    This is genius!!! I'm so thankful. You've done a great job with the tone chart, I would have never thought of something like that. Thanks again. I'm subscribing right now.

    Thank you for your tutorials. I found them to be very helpful in understanding how to Color grade and how to set up my own using the tone curve.

    hi Denny I hope you see this
    first that is a great video thanks a lot !!!
    I didn't understand how I connect the color png file to the image in Lightroom ?

  • Reply L .Sotelo January 28, 2019 at 4:57 am

    I'm hoping you can answer a few questions about using this chart with raw files. For external editing in lightroom it is set as ProPhotoRGB at 16bit and the png provided seems to be an 8bit sRBG. Should I be worried about this conversion? After I save a copy with the chart as a TIFF in photoshop it has limited slider ranges in lightroom like an 8 bit image. Does that mean I should WB my image before I add this chart? Maybe this tool is mean for JPEGs? Thanks for the help.
