How can I recreate this?


New Member
I'm working on a job right now which needs to fit within a campaign. The images on some of the other collateral look like the one below. How do I get this look? I thought if I turned a colour image to grayscale and then added the red it would work but it doesn't. Couldn't get it to look like this as a duotone in photoshop either. I remember years ago in my Quark XPress days you could colourise a tiff from the colour palette within the programme. Just wondering if you can do something similar in InDesign CC and that's how its been created. Any ideas?

I'm pretty sure there's numerous ways to do it in Photoshop - Photo Filter and Layer blending for starters.
Start with your black and white image in RGB mode.

I'd use a Gradient Map adjustment layer personally, one colour set to black, another to red. Then you can play around with the sliders to mimic adjusting the contrast of the image.
