not sure if it's the same, but in CS: image->adjustments->hue/saturation->select colorize, then slide to find the tint you're looking for.

or add a solid color layer mask with a sepia tint and decrease the opacity

there's lots of ways- I particularly like the first. there's also the 3rd party plug-ins or actions - pick sepia, hit play. I believe sepia is an innate action in CS(?)

Here is an image turned sepia with the hue/saturation tool. The settings were 40 for both hue and saturation. Of course you must click the colorize box. The trick to keeping it from looking muddy is to have plenty of contrast so that you still get clean whites and solid blacks. Another way to go about it is to use your favorite black and white conversion method first so that you can create the tonality you desire. Then go to hue/sat.

I have found the quickest way to do a nice sepia is to do a color overlay layer with the R being 100, G being 100 and Blue being 80. Choose color for the blending option and opacity of 100%.
Just like everything, there are about a million ways to do the same thing, just sharing one way I do it.

Jeff

PS7 ships with an action to create sepia. If you click on the "Action" tab and scroll down the list, one of them says "Sepia."
