adding Sepia and color to a photoshop document
on Jan 4, 2006 at 10:56:45 pm

I've pasted several black and white photos together and now I would like to make the document sepia. Then I would like to add color to certin parts of the photos. How do I do that?

1. Always work on new layers above the original. Duplicate the original layer so if you mess up you can start all over again without having to go to the history palette or reopen the image.

2. Add a sepia tone color adjustment layer.

3. Paint on new layers above the sepia tone with the paint brush set to a lowered opacity or using a different blending mode (like overlay or color) with a lower percentage. Be sure to select areas to make sure that the color doesn't go into the wrong pixels.

I don't understand. I'm new to this part. I'm making one sepia and one black and white with color. I didn't understand your instructions.

So you want to have a sepia version and a second B&W version with some color areas?

Sepia tone tutorial:

Colorize photos:

Took me less than 5 minutes to find them on the internet. You will find google.com and dogpile.com to be wonderful resources as there are thousands of tutorials out on the web that are free and immediately accessible. There are also many excellent books on the subject available at your local bookstore or through the Creative Cow online store.
