"NeatImage is THE standard by which noise reduction..."
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've used NeatImage for several years, and started using the Mac Plug-In as soon as it became available. Nothing is easier to use. And nothing works as well. Period.
Unfortunately, the Mac version is less advanced than the PC version as far as capability goes. I personally miss the ability to select sections of the image to use for noise profiling and the detailed level of control of the PC version. (I've only used the stand alone version of the PC version, so I don't know if the plug-in version on the dark side keeps those capabilities. I expect it does.) Regardless, this is worth the money if you are serious about photography.
Before I got my Nikon D70 I used it on every image I scanned in from 35mm film on my film scanner. Now, I used it when I shoot at ISO 800 and up.
Minus one star for the lack of PC available features.
