Hello, welcome to Creative Nerds. In this quick tip we will share with you how to create a core duotone effect, using Photoshop. We want to start off by duplicating our existing layer. And then we’re going to right click and select blending options. And we want to remove the “R” and the “G “on the channels options and select okay. Then going to slightly move it out. I will lay off to create that initial duotone effect. And then we’re going to duplicate the layer again.  Right click on blending options and this time we’re going to remove the “B” and check the “R” instead and select the okay button. And this time we’re just going to move it down instead. And there you go, we’ve created a core duotone effect within Photoshop in a matter of seconds. Thanks for watching and stay tuned to Creative Nerds for very quick tips on how to use Photoshop.
