Apertures handling of Normal noise is excellent, every bit as good the best in class, in fact the results are so close to Noise Ninja, I suspect they may have licensed NN. It is pre-optimised to deliver an excellent balance and can only be tweaked, never fully turned off (even setting the slider to zero in raw fine tuning) as it's built into the raw conversion process.

For the record, the current version of Noise Ninja that is integrated and available only in Photo Ninja is significantly improved over the previous stand-alone version.  I have no idea if NN was ever licensed for use in Aperture.


I have the full version of Noise Ninja as a plugin running inside Aperture, Lightroom, and Photoshop.  It was definitely available as a plugin and a stand alone for Macs.  With the move to embed it in Photo Ninja, it now is no longer available as a plugin.  Moved to nik dFine.

Only my opinion. It's worth what you paid for it. Your mileage may vary! ;-}
