Designing in Duotone in Photoshop

Designing in Duotone in Photoshop

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.
