PS Action for Adding a Sepia Tone

It seems that a frequent question is how to add a sepia tint to an image.

I made up a small PS CS action for adding a sepia tint. It converts to CMYK and uses adjustment layers, so it is compatible with PS CS. Earlier versions of PS, if you convert to 8-bits.

You can easily adjust the tint after you run the action.

Enjoy!

Cheers,

Mitch

I just posted version 1.0b on my site.

(1) Adjustment layers are added to a layer set.
(2) An action was added that adds a small amount of monochromatic
noise to further simulate an old print.

Enjoy!

Hi Mitch,

I like to add a light Sepia toning to the older pictures I restore, so I tried your Action for Adding a Sepia Tone, first 'as is' then trying to change some of the 'default' values, on several pictures ....

In the 'as is' version the final tone was a tad too red (this could be my monitor), but when I used the 'Toggle dialog on' and tried to change some of the values to my taste, the end result got green .....

Am I doing something wrong?

What got too red/green? What you see on the monitor or on the print?

If there is a difference between what you see on the monitor and a print, I suggest you calibrate your monitor. Especially if you are going to try to make fine adjustments to a tinted image.

If you do not like the result on the monitor, I suggest you add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.

Adjusting the Lightness slider for the Master will make the sepia tone lighter/darker. You could also tweak the Saturation slider. The Hue slider will let you make a wholesale change quick to the hue of the sepia tone.

You can also tweak the Hue slider for just the Reds or Yellows, too.

Cheers,

Mitch

It is only what I see on my monitor after running your action unaltered (a tad too red) ...and after running it changing some of your default values, which at the moment gave me the result I liked, but when the action came to its end the end result is a tad too green ....

I'll try adding a Hue&Saturation A.L. on top and get back to you...

Thanks for your feedback!

Hi Mitch,

.... the added Hue&Sat AL at the end of your action solved the colour problem!!!
