Re: Adding A More Realistic Film Grain Effect

Well Mark..... I have a P45 And have used Phase one since the very start. I much prefer retouching from film.

Lossy? no! Not on our Drum scanners, and not on the LVT! But hey! I am a bit of a dinosour! LOL!

Re: Adding A More Realistic Film Grain Effect

have you tried NIK's Silver Eflex. It has a film grain feature that takes into account the density differences so it varies the amount. CS5 ACR also has a grain feature now.

Re: Adding A More Realistic Film Grain Effect

Hi! Thank you for sharing your action!

I have just watched your explanation video and I'm a bit confused.

Why are you selecting the 3 different channels? You are running the add noise filter on a 50% grey layer, all the three Channels look the same.

Thank you very much

Talking Re: Adding A More Realistic Film Grain Effect

I've used NikFx and Imagenomic RealGrain at some friends' studios, in my opinion both offer great quality, but price is more than high!
This one is so cheap and when I'm working on Photoshop it's the fastest solution for me:
Just with the free sample you can install the iso400 pattern, that works very well in common images.
