SEPIA TONES CAN RESCUE FADED PHOTOS
Newer imaging editing software can work miracles when it comes to restoring color to faded color photos, but sometimes it's a better choice, especially when the photo is "vintage" to use a sepia tone (yellowish, reddish or brownish) instead. Sepia tones seem more appropriate for new prints of very old photos, especially tintypes and daguerreotypes because they already had that tonality.
Sepia tones can benefit black and white images too; sometimes black and white is just too harsh and cold. Compare these two photos - which one feels softer and warmer?
