In the past, black-and-white photos were very popular. People used different techniques to add effects to their photos, including the sepia effect. This was a way to add warmth to the photo and give it an antique look. In this tutorial, we will show you how to make a photo sepia in Photoshop.
First, open your photo in Photoshop. Then, create a new layer and name it “sepia effect.” Next, go to the “Image” menu and select “Adjustments.” From there, choose “Gradient Map.”
In the Gradient Map menu, you will see a gradient bar. Click on the gradient bar to create a new gradient. You can customize the gradient by choosing different colors for the stops. For example, you can make the first stop dark brown and the second stop light brown. Play around with the colors until you get the desired effect.
Next, set the blend mode of the “sepia effect” layer to “Soft Light.” This will make the photo look warmer and more antique. You can adjust the opacity of the layer to make the effect more subtle.
To make the effect even more pronounced, you can add a few more tweaks. Create a new layer and name it “vignette effect.” Then, select the Elliptical Marquee Tool and draw a circle around the center of the photo. Go to “Select” > “Inverse” to select the outer part of the photo. Then, go to “Filter” > “Blur” > “Gaussian Blur” and adjust the radius until you get the desired effect.
Finally, go to “File” > “Export” > “Save for Web” and save the photo as a JPEG or PNG file.
