It's not content aware per se, it is more local exposure aware. It increases the grain in shadows and lowers/eliminates the grain in highlights.

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 can tell you how I would approach this in photoshop: create a luminosity mask and then apply a grain filter. That way the grain would be applied proportionally to the gray tonality.

I haven't tried it but I have done very, very similar things with other filters.

I'll have to give this a try.  Thanks for the suggestion.
