Sometimes you might want to combine monotone with color to produce a new look for your photograph. The history brush is very effective in helping to create that combination.

How To Apply Monotone Using The History Brush

1. Open the file. Choose File --> Open --> Enter the image name to be fixed.
2. Hold the Ctrl Key down and hit the + key a few times to zoom the image to 100%.

8. You can add additional snapshots at any time if your image needs additional editing.
9. Save the image.
