Lately Ive been asked a lot about the soft vintage tones I get in my pictures. The tones I got in pictures like this
I got them from this action by Apples and Sisters, Warm Sepia. This little action has become my all-time fave for fast vintage processing and now I use it for every single picture I take.

-The action was made in Photoshop CS2, and it's compatible with Photoshop CS, CS2, CS3 and CS4. This action was never tested in Photoshop 7 or earlier versions if you give it a go and it works, please let us know.
And now, a couple secrets about this action:
-If you want to get stronger tones but keep it vintage all in the same movement, after running the action go to image > apply image > soft light 65%
-If you want to get a much more creamy sepia effect with stronger lighting, run the action and then go to image > apply image > soft light 50% > finally run the same action again and thats it.
