    I know it sounds stupid... but how do you get the 'right' Sepia look to an
    image you've scanned and want to play with in PS 7? My buddy recommended
    doing any B&W work with the channel mixer [and i must concur, it allows a
    pretty good versatility], but to do sepia... I'm lost.

  2. Two similar methods which were given to me:

    1. Go to Image Mode and convert it to RGB first.

    2. Go to Image Adjustments. Then go to Hue and Saturation. Click on
    Colorize. Adjust the sliders to suit - for starters try Hue 35, Saturation
    30, Lightness 0.


    This is how I have done it with PE2:

    1. Make sure the image is in RBG color (Image/RBG Color)

    2. If color: Enhance/Adjust Color/Remove Color

    3. Then: Enhance/Adjust Color/Color Variations

    4. Click on Midtones, then Increase Red and then Decrease Blue

    5. You may have to play with the Color Intensity slide to get the tone you

    You could also try converting the image to aduotone, and
    experimenting with the second colour untill you find one you like.

    Make sure the image is greyscale, then change the mode to duotone, a
    window will pop up,double click the swatch for the second colour and
    another colour window should pop up, choose the colour you like save
    then convert the image to rgb or cmyk.
