To create the "sepia" effect,  or in other words the old school photo effect, is actually very simple only a few steps.  First off I started with this image because I thought it would look good as an old picture.
Go to Image>Adjust>Hue and Saturation.  when this dialogue box comes up check the COLORIZE button at the bottom.  Then move the sliders as shown.  Feel free to adjust the sliders for a lighter or darker effect.
There we are.  Done.  Pretty simple eh?  Looks very nice on new photos that you would want to print out and have look old.
