You may be doing colour grading every day without realising you’re doing it. Colour grading is a central part of content creation. For example, changing levels or curves in Photoshop, taking a photograph in black and white, adjusting a person’s face colour in After Effects – this is all colour grading.

While there are software packages that excel at helping artists change and adjust colour, colour grading really applies to the creative thought process in why colour needs to be adjusted, rather than colour correction, which is making images’ work’ (see our best photo editing apps for more on this).
