Chapter 17.  Having Fun with Color  > Creating a Duotone Image

Creating a Duotone Image

As noted in an earlier chapter, a duotone image typically is a grayscale image to which you add a second printed color to tint the image overall. (You can add two tint colors to create a tritone image, and three tint colors to create a quadtone image.) The steps here illustrate an example of converting a grayscale image to a duotone for a nicely tinted printout.

NOTE

Remember, some tools and conversions aren’t available for images using 16 bits of color information per channel, so convert to 8 bits per channel. To convert to a duotone, the image must be set to 8 bits per channel. Refer to “Working with Bit Depth” in Chapter 15 to see how to make this change.
