Film Grain

Before After

Adds realistic film grain to any image.


Filter Settings Panel Description

Grain per pixel: Based off of the unique Nik Grain Engine, this slider lets you add realistic grain into your photo. Move the slider to the left, decreasing the number of grain elements applied per pixel, to increase the size and visibility of grain throughout your photo. To prevent any grain from being applied to your photo, move the slider completely to the right.
Grain Softness: The Grain Softness slider enables you to control how hard or soft the grain appears, with harder grain providing a feeling of more detail or sharpness and softer grain providing a more natural film feeling.
Film Contrast: Adds a natural film-like S-curve to the image.
