Simple Toning in digiKam

Transcribed from Dmitri Popov's blog, 4th April, 2012

Adding a dash of color tint to a black and white photo can often produce a dramatic effect, and digiKam does have a handful of toning filters for you to try.

But you are not limited to the built-in filters: using digiKam’s editing tools, you can easily tint photos using whatever color you like. To do this, open a photo for editing, choose Color -> Hue/Saturation/Lightness and set Saturation to -100. This effectively turns the image into a black and white photo. Press OK to save the changes, then choose Color -> Color Balance. Use the sliders to create the toning color you want. Press OK, and you are done.
