Noise Reduction Shootout (from anything better than LR5 thread?)
11 months ago

This is a small 1:1 crop (1194 × 963) of one of my film 4000dpi scans. The full image is 5648 x 3808.

It was saved at the highest quality jpg in Elements for the purpose of this shootout. Be sure to grab the full version that you can reach by clicking the image, not the image in the comment box. When you are done editing your version of this image be sure to save it at the highest jpg quality possible. Post with the original, as I did below.

****To view comparisons of before and after there is a neat way to do that by simply opening each original file (right click "original size" link under image) as a separate tab and toggling back and forth between tabs. They will be perfectly aligned and you can quickly see the before an after between the orginal and the edited version.*****

Lets see how well you all can lower noise while still looking realistic and no blotchiness in sky area. My choice of noise reduction app is Noiseware. So here goes.
