Newbie Need help tinting in Photoshop

Hi there, I am new so be nice. I actually joined just to ask this question. This was shot with on camera flash. I just wanted to know, how would one get this kind of tint in Photoshop? It has a film/out-of balance/old timey feel to it. How can one do this? Thanks, Jonny!

Here is the link:

Everyone here will be very nice to you. You can be sure of that. You may want to play with some of the layer styles or the sepia action in the actions tab. Yu can also play with hue/saturation and levels, until you achieve what you like.

Mostly, this look overexposed in indoor light to me..but I wouldn't trust my eyes LOL

Try duping the layer, screening the blend, and then use color balance and then pull back on the saturation

Jonny,
Welcome to RetouchPro.
I would agree that it really just looks like a bit of desaturated color, rather than an old-timey sepia application. After desaturating as the others have advised, you can also experiment with the black&white adjustment layer. It offers adjustable controls for applying some nice contrasts, which can be toned down with blend modes, as well as sepia-like toning (check the tint box).

Re: Need help tinting in Photoshop

For the first image. Definitely desaturated.

Keep an eye on the light though. It's a single hard light source from almost the direction of the lens (what we call "on-axis"). It also appears to be slightly overexposed for the face.

For the second image. It was probably overlayed with 2 different gradient maps with different colors (red and blue) then each was painted selectively back over the original image. The other possibility is that the photographer used 2 gelled strobes (red and blue) on the image but I don't see the evidence of additional light sources. Plus, that hazy look is an artifact of adding gradients to an image.
