Photography Business: Taking Baby Photos - for Professionals & Families

Sepia Toned Prints from Your Colour or Black and White Photos - 5 Minute Digital Fix

This generally means that the photos in question are either black and white or, in many cases, the photos have been tinted, usually a muddy brown colour better known as Sepia. Some clients will ask for their restored photos to be produced in pure black and white even though the original is in Sepia.
