I have a very old print (1903) which has a very strong red cast (I guess it was originally sepia tone that has changed color over years): I want to remove the red cast and either change it to sepia or b&w - assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Just change it to B&W by selecting a profile at the top of the Edit sliders, then you can adjust the Light sliders and add a sepia tint using Color Grading if you prefer sepia.

Thank you Victoria - yes, it's fixed! Sorry to have been so dim. This is a brilliant resource and I'm thankful for every thing you're doing.

Warmest best wishes
