    "Can't find better noise/grain reduction for..."

    August 5, 2005  |   By Welles Goodrich


    ...profiled hardware
    This review was originally posted on
    Where Neat Image absolutely shines is in a workflow with known consistent hardware imports. You create profiles for the specific camera or scanner and the resulting noise/grain reduction seems nearly miraculous. The results of auto-profiling specific images are slightly less stunning and some images don't have a large enough area of little detail necessary for the software to analyze. But still it is much better than the new PS noise filter.

    The one function which I didn't care for was the automatic sharpening included when applying Neat Image. The automated sharpen provided too much haloing for my taste. So I turned it off altogether and use Optipix 3's Detail Sharpener after Neat Image. What a combination!
