An easy variation to create a sepia tint

Added on Wednesday 12th of April 2006 11:39 pm EST


Adobe Photoshop 7/CS/CS2

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


As outlined in our article “3 easy ways to give your images a timeless hand-tinted look,” you can quickly add a sepia tint to your images in Photoshop CS and CS2 with the Photo Filter adjustment. Since this option isn’t available in Photoshop 7, we’ll show you another variation that produces similar results; it’s called the Variations adjustment command. The good news is that Photoshop CS and CS2 users can follow along as well.


To add a sepia tint with a Variations adjustment:

1.       Open the file First_kiss3.psd to pick up from where we left off in the article.


Note: If you’re working on a different image and want to follow along with us, flatten your RGB image, duplicate the background layer, desaturate the background layer copy, and change the opacity of the background layer copy to 75%.

2.      Set the Opacity for the Black And White layer to 75%. If you’re following along with a different image, this is referring to the Background copy layer you just desaturated.

3.      Choose Image > Adjustments > Variations to display the Variations dialog box.
