Applying Tints

Working with strictly black-and-white images can get boring. Sometimes it’s fun to turn the black into a different color, especially if the image is a drawing, map, or other line art. Here’s a quick trick I often use on grayscale images, using the Color Variations dialog box we discussed in Hour 12. First, change the color mode from grayscale to RGB. (Image, Mode, RGB) Then, choose Enhance, Adjust Color, Color Variations, as I have in Figure 14.25. (Be sure you look at this in the color section.)

Figure 14.25. Even though there’s no color in the picture, Variations tries to add some.
