Sepia Conversion Tutorial

1 • Open the photo you'd like to convert. Make sure that it is properly exposed with reasonable contrast.

2 • Press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer.

3 • Press Ctrl + U to bring up the Hue/Saturation dialog. Be sure to check the colorize checkbox, and I like these settings - Hue :40 and Saturation: 20. Then click OK.

4 • Press Ctrl + J again to duplicate the now sepia layer.

5 • Change the layer blending mode (at the top left of the layers palette) to Soft Light.

6 • For some photos, the effect of the Soft Light blending mode will be to much. Simply adjust the layer opacity to your liking.

7 • Flatten and save.
