Duotone to JPEG

Duotone to JPEG

Hello. I seem to have a problem with Corel PHOTO-PAINT 11: I have modified an image in duotone and find myself unable to convert it to JPEG. Is such a conversion even possible?

Thank you.

RE: Duotone to JPEG

You probably have to go to grayscale.  If I am not mistaken duotone is 4-bit while jpeg is 8-bit.  Under the Image tab there should be some settings for converting the file to Palleted 8-bit or Grayscale.  I will have to check when i get home on v11 - but X3 indicates duotone is an 8-bit image.  So I may be completely mistaken about this.  are you using two colors, or are you using your image as grayscale?  I will have to get back to you after looking at v11 tonight.

RE: Duotone to JPEG

Converting to paletted 8-bit actually did help. Thank you once again.
