You don't need a filter for this.
Convert the image to one of the color modes (RGB or CmYK, depending on whether
you'll just use it on the screen, or plan to use it in print too.) Then,
Image->Adjust->Hue and Saturation. Click the Colorize button, turn the
Saturation down, and move the Hue slider until you find a sepia you like.
Alternately, use a Pantone book to choose a color you like. Select that color
as your foreground color in Photoshop. Convert the image to a color mode,
Select All, Edit->Fill with Foreground color in Color Only mode.
