Task 6 How to Build Duotones, Tritones, and Quadtones for Print

Whereas a duotone adds one color to the black plate, a tritone adds two colors to the black plate, and a quadtone adds three colors to the black plate (for totals of three and four colors, respectively). Work closely with your printing specialist to create a plan for setting percentages and proofing the image before printing. This task shows you how to apply the settings and set up the file for the printing specialist, who should help you define the settings.

1. Open the File

Select File, Open and launch the image file you want to modify. If you worked with an image in Task 5 to create a duotone for the Web, note that you should use the original image for this task, not the already converted image.
