    Post Technique Question / How to get a granular, photocopier look

    Hey guys...sorry in advance for such an amateur question, but for years I had access to a great, old photocopier from the 80's. I used to just copy images or collages, boost the contrast and a few other minor tweaks and then scan it into Photoshop and add type and such from there. The machine is no longer around and no longer an option to use.

    That being said, is there a way to achive this kind of blown out, grainy look that these old machines produced in Photoshop? Or, can I change settings on modern copiers to get the same look?

    I'm aiming for this type of vibe/texture: GigPosters.com - Vee Dee - Mannequin Men - Outer Minds

    Can someone offer any advise?

    Greatly appreciated!

    ps filter photocopy, select all, copy, undo, paste on new layer, darken(or multiply), adjust both layers using above or levels.
