Working with the Sepia Tone Controls

The Sepia Tone adjustment controls behave similarly to the Color Monochrome controls, except that the sepia color is already selected.

  3. By default, the intensity of the sepia color is set to the maximum value of 1.0. Adjust the intensity of the sepia color by doing one of the following:

    • Drag the Intensity slider to the left to decrease the intensity of the sepia color in the image‚Äôs midtones, or drag the slider back to the right to increase the intensity.

    • Click the left or right arrow in the Intensity value slider to modify the intensity by 5 percent increments, or drag in the value slider.

      The left arrow decreases the intensity, and the right arrow increases it.

    • Double-click the number in the Intensity value slider, then enter a value from 0.0 to 1.0 and press Return.

The image is converted to black and white, with the sepia color tint applied to the midtones.

You can also brush the Sepia Tone adjustment on selected parts of an image. For more information, see Making Brushed Adjustments.
