sepia color filter

Post by maho » Sun 18 May 2003 02:07

Hello,

I'd like to take a black and white photo and give it a nice sepia tone. I've been trying to do this using Tool->Clut and playing with the RGB filters, but it is hard to get the brownish sepia tone without it appearing too red or too yellow.

Anyone know how to do this well?

I would suggest to try the function "Tool/Color/Hue-Saturation". Select here "Colorize" and setup Hue to about 30 and Saturation to 25.
