Part 6: Graphics > Colorizing Images

Chapter 67. Colorizing Images

Both QuarkXPress and InDesign let you apply color to a grayscale or black-and-white (Bitmap) TIFF image. They both also let you apply a color to the background of an image’s frame to create a “fake-duotone effect.” However, when applying colors, XPress users have to get accustomed to using the right tool to select the right item.

If you want to colorize the image itself (only grayscale or black-and-white TIFF, JPEG, or PSD files), you must select it using the Direct Selection tool. As we explain in Chapter 64, this selects the graphic, rather than the frame. Then you can use either the Swatches or Color palette to apply a color to the image. Using the Tint slider on the Swatches palette has the same effect as choosing a Shade from XPress’s Style menu.
