Default Noise Reduction Plug-In?

I presently use Microsoft Picture It! Digital Image Pro 7.0 and can use most Adobe Photoshop plug-ins.

There are so many out there! I'm looking for a basic, no-frills, noise-reducing plug-in for low-light photos.

Any suggestions?

P.S. I've tried Dfine, GEM, and Neat..., but none of them work well.

I have no experience with using any of them with Picture it. Neat Image has a stand alone program that can be used outside of an editor. That may be a better choice for you.

Beyond the ones you've mentioned, the only other I can think of is Noise Ninja. I tried the demo of it and didn't like it as much as Neat Image or Dfine though.

Another nod for NeatImage.

You could try "Grain surgery" plugin for PS and more.

The Pro Plus version of neat image has a PS Plugin. The free version doesn't.

I use the stand alone program and it works very well.

After reading this forum, I am thinking about either NeatImage or DFine. Anyone like one over the other?

I can't speak for DFine, but I like NeatImage. Very simple to do and very effective. I use the plug-in version, works right out of Photoshop.

You can d/l a trial version I think (not of plug in though)

OK - I downloaded the trial version of DFine and neatimage. I like the way Dfine works but when it renders the final image it writes 'demo' all over the screen. Neatimage doesn't have a camera profile for the Fuji S2 and it doesn't appear to work without any profiles loaded. I guess I get what I pay for.

Go over to the neat image profiles section and scroll all the way to the bottom. They give you directions (and a calibration target download) for making your own profile. It's real easy and you can make one for various modes that you use.
