You’ve probably seen this duotone photo effect in a lot of product and UI design examples around the web. Today I’ll share and walk you through this small design app that allows you to quickly upload or use predefined Unsplash photos to apply and customize a duotone effect. All you need to do is to pick an appropriate photo (I’ll share how to assess this) as well as apply just the right shades of color (I’ll show this one too). Needless to say, this is a tool worth having in your UX/UI, product, and visual design toolkit.
