Angi, I don't mean to be rude or obnoxious but did you know I love old manual typewriters?? .. i think this photo is for me Smile .... Wink lol... I obviously quite like it... I'm even hoping that someone actually still uses this one. Great capture

Nice shot - how did you add the film grain? I was looking for a tool in Photoshop CS3 but could only come up with "noise".

Thanks, Russ

Can smell the polish and the typewriter ribbon - very evocative and, no, not on the dark side at all . Like this very much. Jan

Hi all and thank you for your kind comments Smile
Oly I can honestly say I have never found you rude or obnoxious ever Smile lol so, I dedicate this photograph to you! I too love old typewriters, I was taught to touch type on an old manual underwood typewriter some 40 years ago! Arghhh! Sadly though this one was in a museum and no longer in use... I would have loved to get my hands on it!
Russ, the film grain is just a fancy name for 'noise' and I used the film grain plugin from Power Retouch pro, but the following link will take you to a handy tutorial for applying the 'noise' filter in CS3.
Enjoy Smile
