how did you make analogue film 1&2?

If you have the action open in the Action Palette in Photoshop, you can click the little arrow in front to see step by step exactly what it does. When done, it will leave all the edits as layers so you can study the components - and tweak the result to fit your image.

Analogue film 1:
* Converts the layer to a smart object (so filters can be applied non-destructively)
* Adds Grain (Filter->Grain, intensity 13, enlarged)
* Sets the Grain to Luminosity blending mode (so it doesn't affect colors)
* Adds a Curves Adjustment Layer (to adjust the colors individually for the RGB channels)

Analogue film 2:
* The exact same as above, but with different curves adjustment.


The only important step here to take note of is the curves adjustment, as that is the only thing affecting the color and contrast. Doubleclick the curves layer after running the action to see/edit the settings.
The grain is just a little extra effect to make it look less digitally crisp (and can be turned off if you don't want it).
