    photoshop. :)
    or a PS action.
    OR, she adjusts the levels to get that effect.
    Try a layer of a yellow similar to that hue and adjust the opacity?

    what's with the bold, yo?:thumbdown:
    there's a little window for just layers, it should have the picture you open up as "background".
    There's some icons at the bottom of that window, scroll over and hover on each to find out which one says "new layer".
    click it.
    fill it with the color.
    adjust the opacity.

    Not quite correct Sbuxo. There is definitely yellow cast, but look at all the blacks. They aren't really black, but blue instead. Your best bet is to adjust your white balance slider then use levels to get the desired effect. Adding a yellow layer won't get it quite like the displayed picture though.

    Set the blending mode of the color fill layer to "color" and it will play much nicer with the image.

    Definitely a photoshop filter or tutorial for that - but I do not know it myself. Try googling things like "photoshop retro/vintage/old filter/tutorial". I'm sure you'll find what you need :)
