LukasSchroederAre you talking about photo or video?
I wouldn't call photo editing "colour grading", its really just a term reserved for video.
If you're really serious about it or you want your videos to look as good as they can, definitely look at learning the free version of davinci resolve. The masking features and the node system is unlike any colouring software.
Otherwise you can find lots of free LUTs for Adobe Premiere out there, and learn how to tweak them.
Also colour correction is essentially part of colour grading. I'm pretty sure that "colour correction" came to be from people who shoot on motion picture film that needed to be corrected when it wasn't shot in the proper colour temperature.
ic3burgSweet I will check that out, thank you!
I always understood color correcting as editing so that the media is as the human eye would see it, and color grading as applying creative changes to it.
