Photoshop Tutorials

I did this tutorial in Photoshop CS3 Extended which is why some of you may have problems. However, that does't mean this tutorial won't work in other versions of Photoshop. Just try it out.

Remember my Have a Black & White Photo With a Hint of Color tutorial? Well I will be showing you a similar effect. However instead of color, I will incorporate a hint of sephia. I will be using the hott James Franco. Here's the before:

Here's the after:

Let's begin!

001.First, open your picture.

002.Do a ctrl+j.

003.Now go Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation.

004.Apply the following settings:
Hue: 25
Saturation: 25
Colorize: Checked
**yeah i know i have 0 entered for hue but just put 25**

005.Now go Image>Adjustments>Variations.

006.Play around with the settings to get your desired effect. To get my effect, simply click on "More Yellow" & "Lighter". My final effect is shown above "Current Pick".

007.Add a layer mask.

008.Make sure you have your layer mask selected before doing the following step. Go Image>Apply Image.

009.Apply the following settings:
Layer: Merged
Channel: RGB
Blending: Multiply
Opacity: 100%

010.If you want to add more sephia to your photo, simply check off "Invert" & see if you like it or not.

011.After pressing ok, you are done, m'dear! :)

If you got lost or have any questions, comment the tutotial & I'll get back to you as soon as I can. :D

It's called "sepia", not "sephia".
