Photoshop Tutorial Cool-Warm Sepia


Sepia is a red-brown ink derived from the species Sepia officinalis, a cuttlefish. It was very popular with artists in the nineteenth century…

The sepia tone employed in black and white photography is the result of converting the metallic silver in a photograph to a sulphide.

It not only made the photo more attractive and fashionable, but it also elongated the image's permanence. Today, sepia toning is a term for any monochromatic photo with a brownish tint to make it look old fashioned.

Although true sepia toning renders an overall brownish tint to a black and white photo, we can make it more interesting by combining the silver gray of the high and middle tones of a black and white photograph with the rich warm darks of a sepia toned image.

Click on ImageAdjustmentsDesaturate to change a color picture to gray tones.

Select the Shadows button in the Tone Balance section.

Adjust the Color Levels to give the shadows a rich warm red brown tone. Use these parameters:

Color Levels: 24 / 0 / -24

Select the Highlights button in the Tone Balance section.

Adjust the Color Levels to give the highlights a silvery gray tone. Use these parameters:

Color Levels: -24 / 0 / 24

The sepia tone in the dark areas gives an aged look while the gray values enhance the aerial perspective and add depth to the photo image.
