  • Sepia Toning (via Layer)

    Desaturate your image and make a new color layer. Choose a color you like (I'm partial to C 13%, M 58%, Y 75%, K 13%). Fill the color layer with your chosen color at 100%. Adjust the color layer opacity and the Background layer curves until you get a combination you like.

    RGB values

    I liked this tip but since I am using Elements2 I don't have the option to choose CYMK values, at least I don't know where if it is possible.
    What would be their RGB values.

      Hi Carol,

      Welcome to RP. I'm posting the RGB values on the pic to the right. Jak's CMYK is on the left. The only difference is that I worked on the original scan. Jak pulled the image from our archives. Good luck.

          Photos Overexposed. Anything I can do?
          by mjdiscovery
          I had a photo session this weekend with a senior for her sr. portraits. The settings that this photo was taken at was f2.8 1/60 ISO 105 WB Auto +2.0 (BAD).

          So, obviously I need to read over my owner's manual again so I'm not just shooting and hoping for the best.

          I am trying to learn how to do more accurate less subjective color correction on product shots as I have been told that my work has too many color casts in the grey and shadow areas of my images.

          I can't seem to find any neutral greys in my image by using a neutral...
