    or maybe I should call it noise reduction software?

    anyway, which program do you guys use. I use Noise Ninja. But I know there is also Nik DFine and Imagenomic Noiseware. Does anyone use the later 2? Both companies makes other useful plugins but I dont hear much about their noise reduction software, I only always hear about Noise Ninja.

    these are PS plugins. Does PS by itself have noise reduction or is it a series of actions you do?

    The PS noise reduction is a joke compared to the third party apps.

    it really is, seriously. you should try out noise ninja or something similar. there's so much more controllability....plus it's usually more effective

    xenon, i think PS looks better, did you label them correctly?

    if so, PS has way more detail, esp in the hair, and is overall much sharper image.

    :dunno:

    those were just real quick renditions of both. i but i think noise ninja is easier to get the results you want.

    theres so many options i just played real quick and thats what i got

    what happened to "Filter --> Noise --> reduce noise:rofl: "

    I have been using NN also and I like the noise profiles you can load for specific cameras and ISO but sometimes to me, using the auto profile functions yeilds a better result. I guess it is just a trial and error type thing

    I have never tried Neat Image before, but hey, I can never have too many plugins
