How To: Create a split tone effect in Photoshop

Create a split tone effect in Photoshop

This video demonstrates the split tone effect in Photoshop. A split tone effect makes a picture look more rustic by changing the tones. First, add an adjustment layer to the picture by opening the channel mixer window. Select Monochrome and adjust the RGB values to create a black and white image to your own personal preference. Next, add another layer by opening the color balance window. Here you can change the colors of the light areas by selecting Highlights and changing the color sliders, or the dark areas by selecting Shadows and changing the color sliders. This video may be useful for people who want to make their pictures look more rustic and old, more for people who want to learn a Photoshop technique.
