A useful tool: Topaz DeNoise

I took this original shot at 6400 ISO with lots of noise:



And using Topaz DeNoise converted the shot to this:


DeNoise, BW conversion, soft vignette

Topaz DeNoise allows one to get rid of the noise without destroying the clarity of the photograph.

If you click on each of the images they will open in a separate window where you can examine the larger image. I am particularly happy with her whiskers which still maintain their detail, rather than turning into a blurry mess (which is usually what happens with most “remove grain/noise” options in processing software).


  1. Thanks for the ‘heads up’ on Topaz….it is a bit of software that had passed me by…downloaded the trial and guess I will buy. As another thought have you tried the beta version of NXD? Looks as if that is what Nikon users will have to use when support for NX2 is withdrawn. Seems good but somehow I don’t find it quite as intuitive….suppose I better practice some more


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
