"Essential tool for Professionals and serious..."
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The Neat Image plug-in for Mac has been greatly improved since it's introduction. The preview window within Photoshop is large and the auto-profiling feature is fantastic. You can build your own noise profiles, based on the camera that you use or use an auto feature to scan your image.
Customer service is good, the respone is great. This is an essential part of a serious digital workflow for professional and amateur photographers. Applying this filter as a first step before doing any color corrections or BW conversions will make a tremendous difference in your results.
I'd like to see a more automated version of this software, that could be used in a batch process, but other than that, it works perfectly. It's even been optimized for dual processor users.
