filter: sepia(<value>);

where a required <value> can be one of the following:

  • Number value: 0, 1
  • Percentage value: 10%, 50%

Note: Value defaults to 1 or 100% turning the element to sepia. A value of 0 and 0% will leave element unchanged. Negative values as well as values greater than 1 or 100% are not allowed.
