    I use to have this OptikVerve Virtual Photographer in PS:

    http://www.optikvervelabs.com/

    It has several filters to apply to photos for various looks.. You can poke around with them and see if you like the looks. You can mimic 'old b&w newspaper' or even add a glow to your photos and tell everyone you shot it with an old Leica...
