I've never been much of a fan of duotone but this was fun using this old photo!
Such a fun challenge!
I really had fun with this one. Thanks for the challenge.
I use gradient map all the time for black/white photos- so this was fun! Thanks!
Used Green and White
Somehow, I had a horrible time with this challenge - probably because I'm trying to learn PS CC at the same time, moving from PSE - not quite bright at choosing this month, huh? So I gave up after 4 hours because I couldn't get what I saw in my head and went to the "short-cut" in PS-CC. Next month when I have more time, I'll work on the technique! I think I'm in brain-fade by now!
hey Liz, to use the gradient tool, go to the bottom of your layerspanel and click on the little circle that is half white, half black (adjustment layers). In the fly-out menu choose 'gradient map...' (second from the bottom)
A new layer is created and the properties panel should open (if you do not see it, go up to the tab 'Window' click on it and choose properties). In the properties panel click once on the strip with the changing color. The Gradient Editor will open and here you can change the colors.
If you need to make changes to your gradient you can also open the editor by double clicking on the thumbnail of the gradient in your layerspalette.
To make sure it only affects your photo, use a clipping mask.
Well stuck with Artisan 5 and got something that resembled something similar, but not really impressed with the results for the effort. (Ironically I opened my very dusty version of PSE - hoping to learn, but not there yet -- and it wouldn't do this effect with this photo at all. Just gave me variations of gray until the whole photo was grayed out no matter the colours I picked. Just played with another photo and it worked, so not sure what happened) Anyways here is my attempt.
I really enjoyed playing with gradients for this. I found a really awesome effect for this photo (in Photoshop in the color harmonies) -- but it was more than 2 colors so saving that one. For this challenge I ended up with a purple and teal choice.
Thank you for the fun challenge.
This is turning into the prettiest gallery EVER! Thanks for a great challenge!
ABSOLUTELY LOVED this challenge Thank you
Such a fun challenge! I always love to learn a new technique - thanks!
Love the way everyone jumps in to help each other out. Thanks for sharing this. I hope you were happy with the final product.
I love the look of the duo technique.
Have you had any luck? When you choose gradient map from the adjustments menu it will turn your photo to grayscale. When the pop up menu comes up on the initial time, instead of clicking OK, try double clicking on the sliding scale and it should bring up the gradient edit menu.
I have PSE and I never use the Gradiant Map, so this was a true challenge for me. I chose a light reddish and blue colors and decreased the opacity for this result.
