To tone an image, first convert it to grayscale. You can use your favorite technique, or choose Image > Mode > Grayscale. Then convert back to RGB Color (Image > Mode > RGB Color). Then run the appropriate action to tone the image. If you're targeting a printer you may wish to introduce a layer with the following curve to depress pure whites so they appear off-white giving the effect of toned paper stock.

Modify Opacity to suit your taste. For example, Palladium at 50% is especially nice.
