    What is the best way to go in/get out quick and clean up a photo? So far I find profiling it and then removing noise at the appropriate strength.

    Anything else to it?

    This is just on the normal turbo mode crap, jacked the luminance to 20 for a good laugh. But hell it doesn't look soft to me.

    You take pictures of the color chart and then open them and make your own profiles for different ISOs, etc.

    Read the instructions. It guides you through it.

    I love love love this little program. Beats the hell out of noise reduction in DPP.

    You shoot Nikon, you shouldn't have to use NN.

    Use really good lenses, nail the focus, and have the shutter at the appropriate speed for the focal length. If these are done then you shouldn't need to sharpen 99% of the time.

    Try doing all of that in an indoor hockey rink. Poor lighting and fast shutter speeds don't go well together!

    PP sharpening is for output, not fixing softness from shutter or OOF issues.

    I'm not so concerned about the sharpening/softness as I am with trying to get rid of some of the noise I get when shooting at 1000+ ISO

    meh, as long as you stay at 6400 or slower, you shouldn't need a program like this.

    I agree. At least so long as you dont go past 2000~2500 on the D90.

    However, to answer your question, the makers of Noise Ninja provide color profiles for different cameras at different ISOs. Download those and then set the program up to auto-load a profile based on the ISO the picture was taken at. Then create an action in photoshop and map it to a keypress.
