Default Noice Reduction

If I am shooting at ISO 1600 (RAW) - how do I reduce the noice in the image to be able to crop to a crisp 8x10 (without it being grainy)? How do I do this in PhotoShop v6.0 (can it be done)?

Should I be working from Raw Image or a Tif Image (does it make a difference?) ?

I am shooting indoor hockey images (no flash) with a 70-200 2.8VR and need to produce crisp 8x10's......

I donít think you can work directly with a raw image in Photoshop 6. They had a plug-in for Photoshop 7 I presume will work in Photoshop 6 but you have to buy it from Adobe.

I like Neat Image. It will do marvelous things with noise once you make a profile for your camera at ISO 1600. The program does that for you but it takes it a while. The pro version comes as a Photoshop plug-in for I think $50. The stand-alone I think is about $30 and works fine.

There is a new player called Noise Ninja. It is at least as good as Neat Image but doesnít come as a plug-in. I think Noise Ninja is pricier if you want to do batch processing.

There are some free noise removal actions if you want to do a search in Google. They arenít as good as Neat Image though.
