How can I achieve colour overlay effect in PS?


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?

I created the following using Duotone.

Image > Mode > Greyscale (you image first needs to be monotone before you can play with Duotone

Image > Mode > Duotone

Select your darkest tone you want to see and name "the ink", copy and paste your colour value as you will need it later

Add a Levels layer, you adjust you "white" so that it becomes a much darker tone. Adjust until your lightest tone is as dark as you want

Add a colour fill layer over everything and use the blending mode overlay, adjust the opacity until you are happy

Image > Mode > RGB

When prompted to flatten, do so otherwise the colours change

You are done!
