A big thank you to Nate Hackstock for turning us on to this very cool software.
It’s good to share.
This is what it is: if you’ve been longing for the films looks that you had before digital and struggle to try to reproduce it, check this-a software plug-in for Photoshop CS2 AND Photoshop Elements that emulates the look of film stocks that you knew and loved.
From Alien Skin Software this is a good one to look into. And one of the best parts? You can download a demo version for 30 days for FREE. I have been assured that it will expire after 30 days, but who knows..you may like it so much you’ll buy it.
“Exposure brings the look and feel of film to digital photography. Simulate the warmth and softness of real world film, both color and black and white. Reproduce realistic film grain, and simplify your digital photography workflow.
You can now digitally simulate the vivid colors of Velvia(r), the rich blacks of Kodachrome(r), the sensitivity of Ektachrome(r), and the characteristics of dozens of other film stocks. Exposure also models the size, shape, and color of real world film grain. Use this level of subtle reproduction to simulate the distinct looks of films such as Ilford(r) 3200 Delta and long discontinued Ektachrome EES and GAF(r) 500.
Exposure simplifies your workflow, collecting color, dynamic range, softness, and grain controls in one plug-in. Correct a colorcast, soften a digital portrait, and tweak contrast with one, easy-to-use tool. Or define your signature look and save it as a one-click effect. ”
