TONAL DROPOUT

'Tonal dropout' usually means that all tones/shades of
gray in an image have disappeared leaving a stark
black and white image, as seen in the poster
on the left.

In Photography, the term 'tonal dropout' applies to a
photo treated to remove the halftones to enable it to
be reproduced as
line art. A similar result can be
achieved by photocopying a photograph.



However, a 2 colour image does not have to be black
and white. The black can be another colour and the
white can be a different colour. This can seen in the
example below.

                                            
CONTINUE: HOW TO DO IT

Tonal dropout and cropping were used on these
images of trams. They were some of the images
used on
The Centenary Art Tram, designed by
Millimetre for Yarra Trams and Siemens to
commemorate 100 years of trams in Melbourne.
