Hello,

This may be a dumb question. I have aperture and PSE 6. I am looking to post process some photos to get that film look, grainy, black and white? No even sure where I would start or if the software I have is capable of producing such images...

Any suggestion on where to start would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Add real film grain from a scanned negative-Petteri Tutorial:

Copy paste the film grain image on a top layer, set to Overlay.
Adjust Opacity to taste.
