5 Ways to Create the Duotone Effect in Photoshop

In today’s Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show you 5 ways to create the trendy Duotone look, the colourful photo effect where the shadows and highlights of an image are replaced with vibrant contrasting hues. This effect was popularised by the music app Spotify when it used the duotone effect in its promotional imagery of artists and bands. In this video, I’ll show you a selection of different methods to create the effect. Some are quick and easy, while others provide you with more control over the final result. Stick around to the end to see the easiest method using my FREE Duotone Gradient Presets, which allow you to apply various duotone colour schemes to an image with a single click.

  1. Thank you for the video. I’m excited to try this out. Does the file type matter? Could I use a regular JPEG file?
    Thank you
