          Learn how to use Photoshop to create selectively add a dramatic sepia effect a
          photo. This Photoshop effect works best when used with Photoshop CS3 but will
          also work with Photoshop CS2 or older using an alternative method.

          Step 2: Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer
          In the Layers pallet, click on the New Adjustment Layer icon and select Hue/Saturation.




          A Hue/Saturation window should appear. With this tool, we'll specify where the sepia effect will
          appear. Decide if you want to select the sepia toned areas according to the color of the image or by
          manually painting the areas where you would like the sepia tone.

          Choose one of the following:

          A) Select by color
          Selecting the sepia areas based on color will give the most natural effect.

          First, decide which color in the photo that you want to keep. Then, select from the edit drop down
          menu the each color in the list except for the colors you want to keep and reduce the saturation to
          -100. For example, to keep the reds in the photo use the following settings:

          Reds: 0 Saturation
          Yellows: -100 Saturation
          Greens: -100 Saturation
          Cyans: -100 Saturation
          Blues: -100 Saturation
          Magenta : -100 Saturation

          B) Select manually
          Manually selecting the sepia toned areas will let you specify precisely the area that you would like
          toned.

          Set the master saturation to -100 and click OK. Your image should now appear grayscale.




          Activate the layer mask by clicking on the layer mask thumbnail in the Layers pallet. Select the
          Eraser tool and erase the areas where you don't want the sepia tone to be applied to.

          Step 3: Add a Black & White adjustment layer
          In the Layers pallet, click on the New Adjustment Layer icon and select Black & White. If you are
          using Photoshop CS2 or older, select Hue/Saturation instead.




          A Black & White (or Hue/Saturation if you're using Photoshop CS2 or older) adjustment layer
          should appear. Simply click OK without editing the settings. Then, change the blend mode of the
          top adjustment layer to Overlay. Double click back on the icon of the layer to bring back the tool.




          Photoshop CS2 or older:

          You will be using the Hue/Saturation tool to add a sepia tone. Checkmark "Colorize" and apply the
          settings below:




          Photoshop CS3:

          If you're using Photoshop CS3, you can use the Black and White adjustment to add a sepia tone.

          This will give you more adjustable settings compared to using the Hue/Saturation adjustment.

          First, adjust the settings to get the black and white look that you like. Or, you can scroll through the
          presets menu to select one of your own. I chose the Red Filter preset to bring up the reds and
          darken the sky.




          Checkmark the Tint and adjust the tone to create a sepia effect. Click OK when done.
