I installed their 14 day trial into LR Classic CC (OS: Windows 10). At first I was pretty impressed with the noise reduction until I looked closely at the generated photos. In every output mode i am seeing that it leaves a stripe of uncorrected noise down the right hand side to some extent around all of the edges. Here is a JPEG sample.

Overall the program does a nice job of killing the noise but it seems to fail on the edges for some reason. It is particularly evident in the lower right edge. I could always crop this out but I shouldn't have to do that, IMO.

I no longer use Light Room, but rather use NoNoise and ON1 Photo RAW and I'm liking NoNoise. Until On1 gets back to you on your ticket, perhaps using NoNoise as a stand alone would get you results without the artifacts around the edges. Simply load the RAW file from the camera into NoNoise, process it there, then export as DNG or PSD, then load that resulting file into Light Room for further processing.

They sent me a link to an update this morning which I installed. All the same issues seem to be present. I tried it stand alone and while that seems to be better, the edge noise is still there.

You can see noise in the sketch on the desk as well as in the highlight area on the right arm of the chair and then the stripe down the right hand side of the image that I commented on before.

I have considered off-and-on switching from LR but I have not seen that any of the alternatives seem to have as good a DAM feature. They appear to be basically alternative RAW converters.

With anything like this, it's better to post 100% crops as well as the full-res image to highlight the problem. Some (most?) folk don't know how or can't be bothered to view an image at 100%.

Good point.  I did test to make sure that it could be done.  Thanks for posting the crops and the other image.  Looks like these guys still have some work to do.

Here's a 100% crop example from the above image.

That's terrible! In the early days, Topaz DeNoise AI did a similar thing but not quite as bad. I used to go round the perimeter of my bird images with a Healing Brush to get rid of it. It was fixed eventually with an update.

By the way, it's nothing you are doing wrong. Here's another example from an image posted in a different thread. Down the right-hand side.

Yep, that is exactly what I am seeing.  It doesn't mater what format I save to or what image I use.
