I’m slowly getting back into my routine again of adding Adobe tutorials to the site once more. I have actually really missed doing these tutorials, so I am hyped to get this one posted.
For those of you unfamiliar with Photoshop or unfamiliar with using duotones, this tutorial is a good one to learn from. I’ve used duotones before in edits I’ve done but Unmesh Dinda always finds a way to shine a light on different tools in photoshop in fun and unique ways. Before I used this tutorial, I didn’t know that Photoshop actually comes with a whole lot (100 plus) of preset Duotone and Tritone templates built in. No need to use any external resources (if you don’t want to).

Comment: Using Duotones in image creation is one of the most commonly used trends in digital and graphic design today. If you want your images to have a special and unique look, duotones and tritone colours will certainly give your image that special lift to make your images look funky and professional.
Unmesh’s tutorial is great because not only does he show you how to use the duotones in your images, but he also shares tips and tricks on how to blend duotone colours into an original image to make it look even better.
Here’s the before image (I didn’t like the brownish/reddish tint this image had originally and wanted to give it a more sombre look)
And the after image:
