Can I create a SEPIA finish for my color/black pics?

Postby fmahlman » Thu Jan 09, 2003 9:15 pm

I am new to photoshop and would like to know how can I create a SEPIA finish to my color/black photos. Love SEPIA. Please anyone HELP! Is it via RGB or is there an already created filter/channel/plug that I could acquire for this purpose? Thanks. :roll:

Photoshop Sepia

Yes, you can easily do this in Photoshop.
Simply open your image and dupilcate it. Then go to Image-Adjustments-Hue and Saturation. In there you can pick the colorize button and try that effect or you can play with the sliders to acheve the effect you are looking for. Keep toggeling between the original and the dup copy to see your results.
Hope this helps you.


Sepia Toning

The easist option I have found is an action under the "Default Actions" palett in Photoshop.
Simply open your photo, open the actions palett (tab next to "History"), click the down arrow next to "Default Actions" (if not already selected), click on "Sepia Toning" and hit the play button.
The action will automatically make a new layer so it doesn't affect your original image. Good Luck!

Use the 'sepiatone' plugin. I've been using it for years.


Sepia toned image

In Photoshop, to get sepia tones you need to change your image from a colour to to Grayscale, so duplicate the image first.

Go to "Image > Mode> Grayscale " and then again choose "Image > Duotones > and from the drop down box on the left top > Quadtones." This will open up four choices of colour which are selected by clicking on the white boxes.

The first is ok set at black, but the next two should be some sort of yellow, and this can be instantly seen in the image.

Choose an orange for the last one and it will get close to what you want.

Change colours to suit your taste.

Sepia Tone

Create a new layer the same size as the photo. Fill with a brown/orange color to your satisfaction. Cut/paste over the photo, then use the opacity slide above the layers.

Sepia Prints

Nik makes wonderful filters to do sepia tone prints. If the photos are not shot in black and white, convert them to black and white, bump the contrast up then mess with the various filters to get the amount of the desired effect. Whats great is that you can contro; the amount of effect that you want/dont want. The filters are rather expensive depending on if you are a professional photographer or hobbisit. ... ndex.shtml

The more filters you get, the more that you will want. I use them almost everyday, a little pricy but very good product!
Hope this helps you.

Even easier. Make a duotone with brown and black!
