Adding film grain

Back in the day, I used to shoot slide film and slide film was very expensive, it was very unforgiving of mistakes, and it was obviously very difficult to share your images. But the slides, they did have a certain quality to them that digital images in some ways lack. There is a certain presence about a transparency, and part of that is due to the grain of the image. Of course, it's very easy for us to now add our own grain into our digital images.

I think the grain has, as well as giving a more analogue feel; it also gives and has some more humanizing feel. It's just a little less perfect than our digital images would be otherwise. Now, in this image, I've done some other stuff as well is adding film grain. So I just want to break this down. Film Grain is just part of the story here. I am going to Alt+Click on the eyeball of the bottom layer, and I am going to turn off the Effects and the Filters. So this is the original image which is a digital image.

This is taken at Chichen I...
