How can I achieve colour overlay effect in PS?


Question

enter image description here

I am trying to achieve the color overlay effect on a image. I have tried Gradient Map, black and white, a new layer with fill color and reduced opacity. But none are giving the best result. What will be the best way to achieve this effect?

It's actually really quick to make something like this.

Open the file, Duplicate the layer so you have the original to fall back on. Create a layer underneath the image and fill it with black. Desaturate your image (Ctrl + Shift + U). Create a blank layer above and add a gradient that you want. I did the same colour as your example. Set the gradient layer to around 80% opacity. Set your image layer to around 50% opacity.

Done!

Hope this helps,

R

My example: simple gradient overlay
