Back in the day, I had a catalog of film scans of out of focus lightboxes exposed to a middle gray. Blank 4000dpi scans from Velvia, Provia, Kodachrome, Ektachrome made up my film grain library. I found myself often adding grain to my dSLR images via layer in Photoshop for my clients. You see, in the early days of digital photography, I still had many clients who thought digital images looked too artificial and sterile. A bit a grain and curves/saturation adjustment always did the trick to make the photo look more realistic. Also, heavy handed WB adjustments were to be avoided. Photos obviously taken in open shade should have still had a bluish cast, otherwise it looked fake. Funny how things change.

Now it’s time to move backwards 😉


How many ridiculous presets and plugins are made not to shoot film.
By the way, which scanner is simulated? Noritsu???? Ha-ha
Or what paper, if supposed an optical print?

Perfect! Now a picture taken by a $3000 camera can look like a picture taken with an app on a $300 phone, so it can look like it was taken with a $70 ebay purchase.

Any word on an Aperture version?

Randy Benter

A visit to their web site was frustrating; it is heavy on the art, light on information and difficult to navigate. I could not find any reference to a trial version, which is disappointing. I am interested in both the custom camera profiles and the film emulations. I could not find out if they have a single custom profile for each camera or if they have multiple custom profiles for each camera.


I wonder how this compares to DXO’s Film Pack 3?

Aleo Veuliah

I think it must be similar to DXO. Not so good perhaps. DXO has a lot of experience on this.


I like the presets a little bit better, but of course DxO is cheaper and supports more platforms and software.


I wish these guys had a standalone version, I don’t use ACR or Lightroom.

Aleo Veuliah

I say the same, but I use Lightroom. I just prefer standalone versions.
