Grain Noise (or „film grain“)

Recommended Posts

This effect generates "film grain" (or luminance grain).

Use it to add some character to otherwise boring-smooth digital image. ;)

Especially suitable for black and white photos.

Find it as Effects > Noise > Grain

Download as part of my plugin pack.


Amount – amount of grain.

Balance – grain distribution across image brightness. "Shadows" applies more grain to dark parts, "Highlights" applies to bright parts.

Tech stuff: basically it uses built-in noise effect at zero saturation, but allows additional balancing of noise level between shadows and highlights.
