Pinterest Picks: Show School Pride with Duotone Imagery

You’ve got a really great football photograph for your yearbook. The team is playing, the crowd is cheering, and it will look great in your fall sports layout. But if you really want to give this photo a school spirit edge, consider making it a duotone image using your school colors.

Duotone is a halftone reproduction of an image using the superimposition of one contrasting colour halftone over another color halftone.  It’s sort of like taking a black and white image, but changing the “black” and the “white” to whichever colors you like.

Duotone images can be created in Photoshop (tutorial here), or you can give images a duotone effect in Picasa. If you use Picasa, you can upload your photos directly to the Picaboo Yearbook app! Here are a few inspiring examples from our Pinterest page:
