What version of photoshop do you have
in PS CS4 If you look in the default actions window you'll see a sepia option that you can adjust to suit your needs and resave as your version see screenshot

Can you try running a test as above and adjust your hue/sat to match by eye the online pic?

After you run the above action the hue/sat adjustment panel becomes available for you to tweak.

Try this color table. Go to Image->Mode->Grayscale... then Image->Mode->Indexed Color... then Image->Mode->Color Table.

Load the color file from the attached zip and it should be pretty close to what's in the picture. Afterwards, you can turn it into an RGB file or whatever you are working on.

You can always play with the colors as well in the table and save new ones based on different photos. Just remember to always turn it grayscale first, then indexed color.

I hope this works for you!

doh! it didn't attach! ok... do the same steps except instead of loading the just click and drag the first row until the middle of the second row...
1st color... h=34 s=70 b=10... 2nd color... h=34 s=70 b=23

click-drag from the next block to the end of the fourth row.
1st color... h=34 s=70 b=23... 2nd color... h=34, s=70, b=34

click-drag the whole next 6 lines.

1st color... h=34, s=70, b=34... 2nd color h=35, s=28, b=67

click-drag the whole next 6 lines (should be the rest of them).

1st color... h=35, s=28, b=67... 2nd color h=60, s=1, b=98

Let me know how it works for you.
