Question 1. True or False. When toning a black and white
image, we must first convert it to true grayscale.
- Both False and True. A true grayscale image is not
capable of storing color. Therefore, it is not capable of having a
color tone. So to apply a tone using a Hue/Saturation adjustment
layer, the image must remain in a color mode, such as RGB.
However, if a tone is being applied using Photoshop's Duotone
(Image > Mode > Duotone), the image must be converted to grayscale
first. But when the tone is applied, Photoshop will automatically
change the image's mode from grayscale to duotone, tritone or
quadtone, whichever was used.
Question 2. True or False. When printing a toned image, we
must use a color printer to print the black and white image.
- True. A printer that only contains black and gray inks
is not capable of printing color. Therefore, a color printer must
be used to print a toned black and white image.
