Color/grain effect

I was wondering how to get this kind of color/effect on an image, it looks to be pretty simple but I'm having trouble getting close to this color/grain

Sepia Tone

Those appear to be sepia tones. One way to do that is to take a black and white photo. Open the file and make sure RGB Color Mode is selected and then use a Hue Saturation Adjustment layer and adjust the hue and saturation slider until you are happy.

If needed, you can add noise.

There is also an action already supplied with photoshop called Sepia. Just open you image, select the action, and run it.

Just by applying simple sepia you will not achieve this effect. It seems like there is a lot to do with light and dark areas.. I would personally create a new layer with overlay mode and apply "fill with overlay-neutral color", set it to 30%-50% opacity and then use black/white brush (70-80%) to do that... But this I guess would be one of many steps.. If you upload the photo you want to edit we might try to help you with it... I guess....

I think in addition to sepia, they might have added a bit of cyan and blue to the highlights. Also, the first one has vignetting added--ie., darkening around the edges.
