    Do you know tools or something else that can create an effect witch imitate
    film grain from real films (Tri-X, Ilford HP ...) ?

  2. Add new layer
    Fill with black
    Change mode to Overlay
    Filter/Noise/Add Noise

    Experiment with the Layer blending mode, fill color and opacity.

    Hope this helps :)

  6. Get hold of and install virtualPhotographer, from . It's free and will run with full
    PS and PE2 & PE3.

    It does lots of other things, too.

    I second Virtual Photographer. Just use its 800 ASA film setting and away
    you go. It does many other dandy things too; it is a fun gadget. As stated,
    it is free.

    Since it is a standard PS plug-in, it'll run with anything that supports
    such. I've also used it in PhotoDraw, Photo-Paint, etc.
