Tinting and Sepia Effect

It's pretty easy and straightforward to apply monochrome tinting using the Swizzler. One of the most famous monochrome effects that is widely used is the sepia effect.

This is the original image

First apply the grayscale effect

Then apply the color correction effect and use the following settings:
Red: 1.0
Green: 0.4
Blue: 0.2

Balance out the brightness using the brightness and contrast effect.
Brightness: -0.1
Contrast: 1.5

And there you have it. A nice sepia tone for your video or photos. The brightness and contrast settings usually require a bit of tweaking for optimal results.

Here are a few other examples:

Removing the grayscale effect for this tint resulted in a nice color tweak for this particular image
