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 .... lol... I obviously quite like it... I'm even hoping that someone actually still uses this one. Great capture"The poetry of photography will always be more important than the mechanics of the camera..." - J-H. Lartigue
Hi all and thank you for your kind comments
Oly I can honestly say I have never found you rude or obnoxious ever 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. http://www.designertoday.com/Tutorials/Photoshop/4678/Creating.a.film.grain.effect.Photoshop.CS3.Tutorial.aspx
