Do you want to add contrast and extend the dynamic range of your B&W images? Or add a tone effect -- maybe a sepia tone or a brown tone for an antique look or a red tone or orange tone for a sunset?

My new tutorial on printing duotones, tritones, and quadtones describes step-by-step how to convert B&W images, explains why printing duotones is tricky, and offers practical advice and a set of recipes -- including my personal favorites: selenium and bronze.

Thanks gmitchel, some interesting stuff there. I enjoy using Duotones frustrating at times but worth it when you get it right.

I'm pleased to hear people found the tutorial helpful.

Don't forget, I have a free set of duotone, tritone, and quadtone presets. My favorite is the selenium and bronze tonig effects.

Cheers,

Mitch
