Scan Your B&W Photos Old School

Add some grain to your B&W scans!

Most probably you have shot a lot of B&W film and then scanned them like you normally would. But, if you are a fan of old school photographs you might want to do something else:

  • Develop you films like usual
  • Scan your negatives like a normal paper document!
  • Modify the parameters until you see the negative like you want

The result? Your photos will look like they were printed in a newspaper a long time ago.
