Control the Tones in Highlights and Shadows with Ease.

Add vivid colors and tone to images, instantly changing the mood of any composition. Create subtle hue changes in either highlights or shadows alone, or combine them to balance color or create vivid image effects.

Split it Up.

Also called split toning, the Dual Tone Adjustment gives you control over the hue of the highlights and shadows without affecting the brightness of the image or the balances of shadows and highlights themselves. This amazing little tool allows you to easily change the feel of your image with just a few clicks.

A Plethora of Palettes.

Adjusting the highlight or shadow color slider controls the strength of the applied color. Increasing either of these sliders provides access to the hue sliders, where specific tints can be applied. Easily add complimentary tones to give images that extra edge towards a pleasing color palette, or add bright vivid tones at full strength to create intense, stylized images in an instant. Combined with Topaz Studio’s blending and opacity controls, you can create an endless array of subtly enhanced image effects or your own library of one click effects to quickly add a consistent color scheme to a batch of images.

Open up a world of color possibilities to enhance and reimagine your images and artwork with Topaz Studio’s Dual Tone Adjustment.

The Topaz Studio Dual Tone Adjustment gives you the control to add a bit more style to your street photography or enhance color harmony in your subjects. Get the color cast you’re looking for with 5 easy color controls.

The sliders and what they do:

1. Highlight Color:
Effortlessly control image highlight color strength within any image with the Highlight Color slider. Higher values result in a more saturated and affected highlight color.

2. Highlight Hue:
The Highlight Hue slider only appears if you’ve increased the Highlight Color slider. This lets you pick the chroma cast for the highlights and lighter tones of your images. The chosen hue can easily be seen by the matching color of the Highlight Hue slider which covers the full spectrum of color.

3. Shadow Color:
Effortlessly control image shadow color strength within any image with the Shadow Color slider. Higher values result in a more saturated and affected shadow cast.

4. Shadow Hue:
The Shadow Hue slider only appears if you’ve increased the Shadow Color slider. This lets you pick the chroma cast for the shadows and darker tones of your images. The chosen hue can easily be seen by the matching color of the Shadow Hue slider which covers the full spectrum of color.

5. Balance:
The Balance slider gives you an extra degree of rule over your image toning by controlling the balance of your chosen highlight and shadow hues. Lower values will tint more of your image the chosen shadow hue, while higher values will tint more of your image the chosen highlight hue.
