Any suggestions for adding grain in lightroom or photoshop. I would like more choice than available within the programs.

Which plugins etc should I look at as possible options?


Thanks.

For B&W, Silver Efex Pro by Nik Software is awesome. . .though a bit expensive if all you're looking to do is add grain, as I'm sure there are much cheaper or even free programs that can handle that task. I used to have a free B&W conversion plug-in that actually did pretty well simulating different film types (to include the grain), but I can't remember what it was called. I've never really had the desire to add noise for color shots, so I don't have any suggestions there.

The "grain" you can add in LR4/ACR7 is *quite* good IMO.

Some of the Topaz plug-ins have the facility to add grain, such as Topaz Adjust, Lens Effects, DeNoise...

DXO Film Pack emulates many color negative, color positive and black and white film stocks and grains.

Here are examples of the available film looks: http://www.dxo.com …pack/available_​film_looks (external link)

It can be used as a PS plug-in or a stand-alone application. It also has a free trial.

Similarly, Nik ColorEfex 4 has film emulation, but fewer stock choices and less control.

I would agree with Renee- The grain you can add in LR 4 is pretty amazing looking-

If you're not into doing it yourself and want a plugin/preset- Check out VSCO. They've got their presets pretty SPOT ON with replicating the look of many Kodak and Fuji films. Generally I am not a fan of presets, but these are pretty amazing
