    Here's the simplest way: though there are a variety of ways to go about it.

    Make a new layer above your picture layer. Fill it will a sepia toned color, maybe like #7B755C.

    Change the blending mode of this layer to overlay, or soft light, or color, or hard light; one of those should work well.

    Something I do to make sepia-toned pics be more defined: after I've added the sepia toned layer with blending mode, I adjust the brightness/contrast or levels of the black and white photo underneath.

    Many times this will really enhance your pic.

    Add a Hue & Saturation adjustment layer and, clicking Colorize, play with the sliders until it looks right. For sepia, you'd have the Hue slider somewhere in the dark orange range and the Saturation slider toward the left.
