Hey guys, welcome to my another Photoshop 1 minute tutorial. This time I am going to show you how to create Photoshop Sepia effect in just 1 minute. If you’re an intermediate or advanced user, you can create it in even lesser than 1 minute. Oh! I forgot to tell this is another tutorial for my 1-minute Photoshop series.

You are seeing many tutorials on Google for Photoshop sepia effect. All of them are great but they are very-very big tutorials. I believe that you should not spend more time in a task that can be completed in a comparatively lesser time. Some tutorials will ask you to open Camera RAW, some will ask you to play with duotone, and some will ask you to use Photoshop filters. All of them will get you the result but will take a good amount of time to achieve the result.

This is why I bring you the Photoshop sepia effect tutorial that you can create in just 1 minute.

Here you go with the final image.
