Dear all,

I know the people in this forum are mostly professional
photographers and probably not too crazy after doing photo effect,
however, it is still necessary sometime for making better pictures.
I myself like to use the noise reduction program to smooth out the
model’s skin or give a clear look of the lake or etc.

Anyway, my question is if anyone of you can recommend a good noise
reduction software.

A posting about a day ago mentioned using a program called "noiseware" which you can get from:

http://www.imagenomic.com/

and its free.

I tried it on a number of ISO-800 shots that I had taken and was quite pleased with the result. If you just use the default settings (which is all I did) you might find its smoothing out a bit too much detail. Anyway its certainly worth taking a look at.

One note, once you have processed an image in it and are looking at the result you can quickly view the original image by clicking on the processed image with your mouse, when you release the mouse button the processed result reappears.

This is a 1:1 crop that shows the typical ISO800 noise:

after noise reduction it looks like:

By accident I had left my camera set to ISO800 and took the following picture in full daylight (this is a 1:1 crop):

after noise reduction it looks like:
