I often use a program called FocusMagic, which I have as a plug-in in Elements 3 anda noise removal plug in called Noiseware made by a company called Imageonic. You coud achieve very similar results with any decent editing program. One trick Norm has taught me is to do selective sharpening. For instance, I selected just the lizzard and sharpened it alone, then inversed the selection to remove noise from everything but the lizzard. I try not to remove noise from my main object if possible because it also removes detail.

"I often use a program called FocusMagic..."

The "magic" you worked with the pic backs up the good things I've heard about Focus Magic. I'll give it a try.

"One trick Norm has taught me is to do selective sharpening."

As I said before, I sharpened the pic as much as I could in PSP without introducing artifacts so I wondered how you managed to remove noise and actually gain detail rather than lose it. Great tip. Thanks for passing it along.
