A Duotone image uses two different color tones to tint your photo, creating a vivid and colorful aesthetic. Spice up your profile photos, create eye-catching marketing images, and more using the effect in BeFunky's Photo Editor.
Step 1: Open your photo in the Photo Editor.
Step 2: In the Edit menu go to the Miscellaneous section, and select Tint.
Step 3: Your image will turn to black and white. Click Color Value 1 to choose the color you want to use for the highlights of your image.
Step 4: Click the box next to Color Value 2 and choose a color to assign to the shadows in your image.
Step 5: Move the Opacity slider to adjust the transparency of the effect on your image.
Pro Tip: To make a true duotone, increase the Opacity slider to 100% and choose bold, complementary colors for Color Value 1 & 2, making sure you assign the darker color to Color Value 2.
Step 6: Click Apply to save your changes. Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
Pro Tip: Your results will vary greatly depending on the image you’re using and the colors that you’ve chosen. Experiment with different colors and opacity until you get the results you’re looking for.
Using Multimedia Effects: Halftone Duo
Our Multimedia effects include Halftone Duo. This uses the same idea as the Tint Tool, but also includes a Halftone effect. Halftone effects use dots that vary in size and spacing to recreate an image. Halftone Duo gives you both halftone and duotone in one handy effect.
