Antique Tinting

There is a script-fu for creating an antique look called "old photo".  Sometimes you might not want all of that noise, despeckling and border.  The color might not be the best either.  I have found the color above is the one people tend to like the most when I do color editing.  The way I tint is a simple method using layers.  Do your required editing to your photo, flatten and desaturate (the color on the right).  Create a new layer, set on overlay.  Bucket fill with this color.  If you want it darker or lighter, maybe a slightly different hue, just use the hue-sat tool. Flatten and save. Don't forget not to overwrite your original.
