Re: Content-aware Grain tool?

I've used the wrong word, then. Local exposure aware is more like it.

Do you know of any grain tools I could use in post processing that are local exposure aware? That is, to do it as in film, grain would be reduced to be less apparent in highlights and would be increased to be more apparent in shadows and mid-contrast value areas.

Capture One offers a lot of control compared to Photoshop Elements at least. It might be my best choice even if it is not local exposure aware.

I am not well versed in software options, sorry.

I would assume that you can mimic the effect by separating shadows, mids, and highs into separate layers. You can then apply differing grain to each layer and then blend them.
