|Toning||SWPP Photographic Glossary|
Wednesday 3rd March 2021
A darkroom technique that is used to change the blacks of a black & white image into a chosen colour. The paper base is not affected so whites stay white. Common toning colours are sepia and blue. This can be achieved digitally using most software’s hue/saturation settings or Photoshop’s duotones system. A method of soaking the print in selenium or similar chemical(s) to help give the print an overall feeling of "richness".
