Three Ways to Add Film Grain in Photoshop

Many digital photographers appreciate the look of film, but don't own the necessary equipment to shoot it, whether that is due to the hassle or the cost. There are many ways to mimic the look in post-production, however, and this great tutorial will show you such methods to do it.

I still love to shoot film, taking out my Rolleiflex whenever I can. However, as much fun as it is, there's a very literal cost attached to it, and that cost definitely crosses my mind each time I press the shutter. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, and so, many of us who like the film look will seek to mimic it in post sometimes. While there's nothing that replicates it perfectly, you can get awfully close, and if it's more the mood you're going for, that's often all you need. Coming to you from PiXimperfect, this video will show you three such methods to add film grain using Photoshop that look much more realistic and aesthetically appealing than simply adding noise. They're a bit more work, but the results are definitely worth it and can give you a fun alternative look for your images!
