Are there any free XNA 4.0 post-processing libraries that are easy to hook into projects? I am looking specifically for a glow effect (although anything is great), and I should also mention that I'm using the Reach profile.

EDIT: I should add that I'm not concerned about the Windows phone, because it can't support custom shaders.

Have you tried the bloom postprocess sample? – Andrew Russell Nov 16 '10 at 5:54
That's a brilliant example. I haven't gone into the code yet but it's for the Reach profile and looks great. Thanks for the link. – Christopher Horenstein Nov 20 '10 at 18:47

Here is a lot of tutorials on Post Processing.

I don't think I'm going to mark this as the answer because it's not really an answer to the question, but this is another excellent resource, and much appreciated. – Christopher Horenstein Jan 19 '11 at 21:01
Thats fair enough, but I don't think that you'll find a Post Processing library on its own as it has a lot to do with how you are rendering your scene. – Neil Knight Jan 20 '11 at 8:44
