15 Actions, Millions of Possibilities
The PHLEARN Duotone Photoshop Action Pack contains 15 Photoshop Actions that are designed to look great no matter what photo you use.
All of our actions are non-destructive, meaning you can alter the settings at any time. If you want to change either color in this Duotone set, simply open the folder in your layer dialog, double-click on the color and change it to anything you desire.
All the hard work is done for you!
Quick Tip: Changing colors in these actions is simple! Just double-click on each color layer and choose your own color.
Duotone Action Tips & Tricks
This action works best with images that have a light and dark contrast between the subject and the background. For instance, if your subject is on a completely white background like the portrait above, your background will be one color and the subject will be another.
If you apply an action and would like to change the colors, simply open the group and double-click on the color layer and choose your own color.
To test multiple Duotone Actions, be sure to make the original Duotone group invisible before applying a new action. This will make sure that the Duotone effect is applied to the original image and not the Duotones colored copy.
