Duotone is an elegant, classic design technique that never goes out of style, but is once again a hot design trend in all mediums, from print design to Web design to ebook design, and, of course, in photography. When printing your work, duotone can even save you money by using fewer ink. Creating duotone images, drawings, and entire publications is easy once you know the basic techniques. In this course, Designing in Duotone in Photoshop and InDesign, you will learn to design in monotone, duotone, tritone, and quadtone in your choice of either or both Photoshop and InDesign. You can participate in the entire course, learning to create stunning, stylish duotone-mode and duotone effect photographs and graphics in Photoshop, and amazing, elegant monotone and duotone publications and layouts in InDesign. Or you can watch just half the course, learning only the Photoshop or only the InDesign techniques. Either way, you'll finish this course with the ability to create stunning monotone, duotone, tritone, and quadtone designs that really stand out and capture interest in a world that is typically full-color or only greyscale. Software required: Photoshop and InDesign.

Duotone is an elegant, classic design technique that never goes out of style, but is once again a hot design trend in all mediums, from print design to Web design to ebook design, and, of course, in photography. When printing your work, duotone can even save you money by using fewer inks. Creating duotone images, drawings, and entire publications is easy once you know the basic techniques.

In Designing in Duotone in Photoshop and InDesign you will learn to design in monotone, duotone, tritone, and quadtone in your choice of either or both Photoshop and InDesign. Designing in Duotone in Photoshop and InDesign is two courses in one, and you can take both or either. You can participate in the entire course, learning to create stunning, stylish duotone-mode and duotone effect photographs and graphics in Photoshop, and amazing, elegant monotone and duotone publications and layouts in InDesign. Or you can watch just half the course, learning only the Photoshop or only the InDesign techniques.

Either way, you’ll finish each module with the ability to create stunning monotone, duotone, tritone, and quadtone designs that really stand out and capture interest in a world that is typically full-color or only greyscale.

I hope you’ll join me in Designing in Duotone in Photoshop and InDesign at Pluralsight.
