Thanks for the link Peter S -

I do think the LR grain is OK... but when comparing it TrueGrain, just isnt as authentic.

What do you all think of the monochrome conversion in TrueGrain: http://grubbasoft.s3.amazonaws.com/t...-video-1.2.mov

How does this conversion compare with LR or Nik?

Back when I started the thread LR3 hadn't been out yet. Now I also use LR3 for grain and love it.

While the thread continued being mostly about grain in b&w pictures, I started it to inquire about adding grain in a color photo. Unlike most I usually don't add grain in order to get a grainy picture. I'm not after the 35mm grain look. What I do is add just a little bit of grain to give the image a subtle texture and 'hide' the pixels.
If I do any kind of cloning or spot removal I apply the grain only after I'm done retouching.

Yeah, much cheaper now -- I remember seeing it many years ago. It was $300 a few years ago!

I was wondering why I didnt just get it in the first place.

Also, how do you all think the b & W conversion compares to Nik Silver Efex -- which I think does some grain too now...(http://niktrainingvideos.com/video/s...ilm_Types.html)
