Interesting test. I have been trying various noise reduction solutions and by the time I am ready to print the final post processed picture I have to admit I can't see much difference. I have Noise Ninja, and Photoshop Elements 3.0 for the Mac. I find myself using the PS Elements noise reducing filter the most. Probably because I have become comfortable with it and it's so convenient. Thanks for posting the link. It's always good to see comparisons like this.

i have picture cooler, and it seems to work quite well. i've used it on several shots, which i've then printed at 8x10, and if there's any loss of detail, it doesn't show up on the prints! best of all, picture cooler is free!!

I like Picture Cooler as well. User interface is straightforward and it's nice to be able to click on the modified image and get a quick look at the unaltered original for comparison.

I use Neat Image and think it works really good.

There is slightly more noise with Neat Image on the test photo, but that always depends on the program settings.

For a better comparision, one would have to bring the photo to the same noise level with all the programs and could then compare how much detail they retained. And of course, one shouldtest withmore than one photo.

I use that one boyzo and find that it does a great job with some on my pictures. I tried the trial version of Neat Image and it does a good job too. Just like this one better. It is good to have choices though.

I have the full version of NeatImage and I tell you.....

Noiseware is lighting fast compared to NeatImage on a Mac.
And Noiseware does a supieror job over the NeatImage.
I thank you and thank you and thank you.
