    I've never used "Elements" so can't directly answer your question.
    Howebver, I can recommend using "Virtual Photographer".
    It's a freebie which offers loads of finishing options including several (I think) variations on "sepia".

    Hope this helps.

    I 'googled' your query and came up with this advice.


    Quote: 1.Open the image in Photoshop Elements.

    2.If the image is in color, go to Enhance > Adjust Color > Remove Color and skip to step 4.

    3.If the image is in grayscale go to Image > Mode > RGB Color.

    4.Go to Enhance > Adjust Color > Color Variations.

    5.Move the Adjust Color Intensity slider down one notch less than the middle.

    6.Click on Decrease Blue once.

    7.Click on Increase Red once.

    8.Click OK.

    I only have Elements 4, so unless I go and test it I have no idea if it would work. Smile

    Hope you let us know the results!

    There is a quick and simple way of doing this and you don't have to convert an image to mono first. (unless you want to?)

    Go to Hue & saturation ( if you are using windows its control+U)

    Click on the colouriser box then move the hue slider to read 29, move the saturation slider to 32 and job done.

    Other interesting toning recipes are

    Viradon, hue 25, saturation 20,

    Cyanotype, hue 220, saturation 35.

    Gold, hue 38 saturation 30.

    Selenium, hue 18, saturation 10.

    Cool tone, hue 220, saturation 10.

    It's very good in fact, not used it for a while and not got it on my laptop, about to pop on here now, thanks for the reminder.

    Virtual Photographer is a great plugin for Photoshop. They've gone a step further now with Virtual Studio, a stand alone programme for mono. If you're interested in thinking, shooting and processing in mono, download Virtual Studio to your desktop and you don't need to open Photoshop at all.

    I mentioned Virtual Photographer on here the other day and someone said that as well as being a plug in for Photoshop, which is how I use it, it works as a stand-alone and that it's also included as part of Virtual Studio so it would appear ther are several options.
    I think you'll find though that whilst Virtual Photographer is aimed at mono woking, Virtual Photographer works in colour.
