    Can't see the image.

    BTW if you want to add sort of a simulated film grain. Filter->Artistic->Film Grain.

    Of course if you want to make it look nicer, you have to do it in a different layer, then modify the grain using tools like guassian blur, etc...

    create new layer
    fill with neutral (50%) gray
    filter > add noise
    change layer mode to overlay

    or can simply "add noise"
    but yes, doing it in layers is better but harder for a newbie

    And adding a slight Gaussian blur to the noise layer make it a lot nicer.
