    Default Sepia tones-help a newbie,please !!!!

    I am a basic newbie to PSE2, but have just completed my PSE class at Eclectic Academy (passed with flying colors). But before part 2 begins (in September) I need HELP!!!
    I have a black/white photo in a file (scanned it a few years ago when I had access to the picture), but the subject has died and now the family wants a copy of it but in a sepia tone to reflect the age. (She died last week at 89, but the picture was when she was 3).
    I have checked out my books on PSE2 for help,couldn't find any, but realized I had the best right here. I'm really glad I've been a lurker for the last few months.

    Change image to RGB color mode (assuming it's grayscale).
    Make new layer.
    Fill new layer with a sepia color (paint bucket tool); something around
    the red: 160 G: 140 B: 5 range or thereabouts.
    Change layer mode to Color, lower opacity to what looks right, maybe 25-
    40%.

    That's one of any number of ways.
