  • How I edit all my photo’s for free ~Part 3 Sepia

    It has been a while since I shared one of these!

    Go here, for the basic tutorial and here, for black and white conversion.

    Okay, here is how I convert an image to sepia using the GIMP.

    Screenshot from 2014-01-19 17:41:59Here is my before image.

    I love it because it seems so moody.

    Yes, I know that is a crazy number of tabs open.

    I am really glad my version of GIMP has a single window mode or I would be in trouble!

    Screenshot from 2014-01-19 17:44:33Change the settings in Colourize to:

    Hue 30

    Saturation 20(I often set it to 10 or less, I like a very subtle sepia)

    Lightness 0(I usually leave lightness at 0 but you can play around with it)

    If you want you can add some contrast by doing an overlay, see here on how to do one.

    Go to File/Export to save your newly edited picture or hit Ctrl + Shift + E.

    And that is it!

     It is so easy!
