Applying Tints

It was common in the early days of photography for pictures to be brown, blue, or silver instead of plain black and white. Sepia toning, which gave a warm reddish brown color, was the most common, and the one we tend to associate with most "old time" photos.

If you want to restore the sepia tone to a picture you've been working on, Photoshop gives you several ways to accomplish this. Perhaps the easiest is to reset the mode to CMYK or RGB, depending on whether the finished photo will be viewed onscreen or printed, and then use the Hue/Saturation window (Image, Adjust, Hue) to add color. After you open the window, as shown in Figure 21.19, check the Colorize box and Preview box. Then move the sliders until the image looks the way you want. Click OK when you're satisfied with the color.
