I have been hoping Adobe would improve their NR in LrC for a long time. Last week OM Systems (formerly Olympus) added AI NR to their free Workspace program for processing raw files. The AI NR is only available for the OM-1, E-M1X, E-M1 III, and E-M1 II though. The E-M1 II needs the 3.0 or later firmware (current version is 3.5).

You can read the AI NR info about 2/3 down the page:


For people who want to and can use this program then it makes a much nicer workflow than separate programs such as Topaz Denoise AI and DXO PureRaw because you don't need separate, huge DNG files.

Using Topaz Denoise AI or DXO PureRaw with a raw file you get a new DNG file. For example, using Denoise AI standalone 3.5.0 and the raw mode my 16.5mb E-M1 II raw file results in a 118mb DNG file. Now I have 16.5mb + 118mb = 134.5mb for one E-M1 II raw file.

It is a great advantage to have it all in one program so I hope LrC will get it soon. Note that if you use DXO PL 5 as your raw converter that you also can do it all in the program without an intermediate DNG.

The other important thing you forgot, it's free, no subscription no nothing, just a camera S/N.

That is right. Only works with Olympus files though and computer requirements are heavier than DXO, On1, and Topaz AI NR.

I need to retract my words. I just found out that the AI NR feature on Workspace will run only with an Nvidia 4GB GPU. That's a deal breaker for me. LrC runs Super Resolution in about 20 seconds on my Intel i7 which has UHD Graphics 770 integrated graphics. Mind you, the GPU runs at 100% but why would I buy a separate GPU card just to run Workspace for benefits that are yet to be confirmed.
