This filter allows you to paint an input image with grain. With the Ink slider to the left the grain is smoother and colored by the image. When that slider is to the right the grain becomes more pronounced and black in color. The grain is purposely rough to give images a more rustic look. There are lots of color and detail sliders to change the final look of the image. It may be too extreme for images that you want to look very realistic, but it is capable of some real cool artistic effects.
