Photoshop: Sepia toning

  Horatio Hornblower 14:03 04 Mar 2003

The Photoshop 6 manual says sepia toning can be done with the Channel Mixer but gives little practical help. Is it necessary to start with a black and white original or will it work with a colour original? How do you do it?

I remember taking original sepia toned pix....

Took my first colour picture the other day...:-)

Don't use Photoshop but must be some reference in the Help files if it's not in the manual.

I may be on the wrong track with the answer to your question. I seem to have forgotten many things these days. However this might get you into the area you want...
