All applied DutoTone effects are added to your Photoshop document in a non-destructive manner, to allow for fine-tune customisation and editability, never affecting your underlying artwork, design or photographic image.

As easy as it is to add DuoTones to your images, with just 1 click you can also opt to add a subtle rustic texture, to achieve that distorted or aged look that matches so well with DuoToned images. Once you’ve turned on the texture set, every DuoTone effect thereafter will also apply the texture to your images.
