Help with editing an image like The National album art

Hello,

I was hoping somebody could advise me on how to create a similar effect to the duotone images from the new National album Sleep Well Beast.

I would like to create a similar blue toned image like the one attached. Any advice appreciated.

Thank you :)

Image -> Mode -> Grayscale

Filters -> Distort -> Newsprint (you will need to play with the options here)

Image -> Mode -> RGB

Image -> Colorize (increase lightness a tad, then adjust the hue)

HTH, Chris

Sorry - that last command is Color -> Colorize. I got distracted and rushed the message ;)

The first thing to do is to make sure that the image is in the correct format. PNG is a better choice than JPEG because it compresses much more efficiently and therefore will have much less impact on your site's loading time. Downloading [url=https://masterbundles.com/templates/presentations/powerpoint/vertical/]vertical PowerPoint templates[/url] is suggested. If you use Photoshop, save the file as a PNG with transparency (no background). If you use GIMP or another editor, save it as an indexed PNG-24.
