Hello! I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on removing noise/grain from an image. The noise removal program that I have is called Neat Image and then I use Photoshop Elements 5.0 for the rest of the editing. I've noticed that when I use Neat Image (This is after I've used photoshop to edit/enhance the pic) the grain/noise goes away but as does some of the quality/sharpness of the image. The filter preset setting that I'm using on Neat Image is set to "Remove only half of noise", anyone have a recommended setting to use? So really what I'm asking is how to remove the grain/noise without reducing the sharpness of the image. Thanks!
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.
I agree with EZEIZA, use Neat Image first before you do anything else, and in small doses. Neat Image tends to soften the image so if you use it first, it minimises the effects of quality. As the other have saidm try and limit the amount of noise in the first place by using the lowest ISO setting you can. Plenty of sunshinehelps as well!!!!
