10 Ways To Reduce Noise In Your Images, Plus Two

I am such a sucker for new low noise reducing techniques. The reason for that is because I love shooting those really high ISO's. Man, the new Nikon's really make it a kick, too. But, we all know there are inherently noise issues when pushing the high ISO envelope.

What are some of the best ways to reduce the noise while still preserving, even enhancing the image quality? Here are three links that will show you 12 creative ways to reduce noise.

Sean Duggen over at LayersMagazine.com shows 10 ways to reduce noise from within Photoshop - here is the [link] - definitely worth a bookmark right here.
Rufus Deuchler over at Blogs.Adobe.com has a way to reduce noise with a very cool image stacking technique right here [link].
Corey Barker over at PlanetPhotoshop.com also has yet another method he demos in his video right here [link].

Hey, don't want to do the heavy lifting yourself, then here are three winning programs to do the noise removal for you.
Noise Ninja - The gold standard for the last several years. [link]
NIK's Dfine 2.0 - Another great anti-noise solution and one of my favs. [link]
Imagenomic's NoiseWare - Another great piece of noise removing software that gets great reviews. [link]

A quick "heads up" about tomorrow's Podcast. I talked to my good buddy, Frank Cricchio, yesterday and he agreed to be a guest on tomorrow's podcast. Frank is one of the living legends in portrait photography in our profession. I'll thrilled to share our conversation with you tomorrow.

Hey gang, that's it for me today. We are hoppin' here at the studio again today and the team is calling. See everybody tomorrow for Podcast Wednesday. Have a noise-free day ;~) -David
