Monotone—one color, either black or a color standing in for black—and duotone—two colors sharing what would have been black or one replacing black and one replacing white—never go out of style. They aren’t for every photo, every design, but monotone and duotone are timeless and always in fashion. They impart an elegance and sophistication to many images that often surpasses the impact possible with full-color.

In Designing in Duotone in Photoshop you will learn to design in monotone, duotone, tritone, and quadtone to create stunning, stylish duotone-mode and duotone effect photographs and graphics in Photoshop. Your images will really stand out and capture interest in a world that is typically full-color or only greyscale.

From photography to print design to Web design to ebook design, duotone is an elegant, classic design technique that never goes out of style, but is once again a hot design trend in all mediums.
