    Greetings all.

    This is perplexing me, so can anyone help? I have a grey scale image (jpeg if it matters) which I want to make a monocolour to match the remainder of the sign design. Thus those parts in black to be 100% of the specified colour, those parts white to stay white and those parts in between to be the same % of the colour that they were of grey. Does that make sense? I'm sure there's a simple obvious way but I'm stumped... I can do this in Photoshop or Photopaint, whichever has the solution!

    In Photoshop

    Image > Mode > Duotone

    DUOTONE OPTIONS window will pop up. From the pull down menu select
    MONOTONE.

    Double click "Ink 1:"

    Select "CUSTOM" and then the PMS match you want.
