    What are some good programs for reducing image noise due to high ISO speed. Or maybe a photoshop plugin?

    Thanks :)

    Noise Ninja or Neat Image.
    I actually prefer Noise Ninja, but I can't get the newest version working, so I use Neat Image. They give practically the same results.

    Original:

    With noise removed, and after some saturation, exposure and constrast changes:

    Both are available as a astandalong application, or as a Photoshop plug-in, I think.

    unless you buy it, noise ninja leaves this grid watermark on your pictures :ugh: So I got the demo of neat image and that has limitations too (unless you buy it) but at least they arent big lines going through your pictures.

    Then again, I may just have some grid setting turned on with noise ninja and not even know it (and look like an idiot)

    neatimage is free.. very few limitations.. i've had the demo installed for over a year and it still works just fine.

    a small splash screen and i cant open the image directly to make neatimage open, but i just open neatimage then open the file..
