Easy Sepia Tone Effect
You use a pair of Hue/Saturation adjustment layers. The lower layer is set to Color blend. The uper layer is left a Normal blend. Instead of setting Saturation to -100 for the upper layer, you instead set Hue to 50, Saturation to 20, and Lightness to +5. Voila, a sepia tone.
You can make contrast adjustments to the lower layer. You can adjust saturation and hue with adjustments to the upper layer. You can even pick a different tone altogether.
If you would like to see sample images, visit the "tip of the Week" on my site:
I modified my TLRSepiaTone action set to use the technique, too. It's also a free download.
I may try that - but my simple technique is to desaturate the photo ( in Photoshop ) and go into variations - set the slided to one notch right of fine then add 4 red and 2 yellow - this makes a beautiful rich sepia .

My "Tip of the Week" for next week is to start with the sepia tone image using the technique I describe. The go to Variations, reduce the Midtone slider one click, and voila! A nice set of tones to choose from. Want a stronger tone, go with the default.
