I am currently using PSP 9, which includes a function for reducing digital noise. Although this seems to work fairly well, I have read about other "stand alone" programs, such as Noise Ninja.

Is there any consensus as to whether stand alone programs like Noise Ninja perform noise reduction better than the components incorporated into more "full-service" editing programs, or at least better than the noise reduction component of PSP 9? If so, what would you recommend?
Thanks for your comments.

There was a post in the panasonic forum with a few recommendation. One is called Noiseware, it works pretty good.

I'm sorry, but you need more experience with the noise reduction software before you post comparisons. Those comparisons do not adequately show the capabilities of Neat Image, Noise Ninja, etc.

Neat Image is capable of removing all of the chroma and luminosity noise that is still evident in the sky, on the transformer, etc. It would be quick and easy, too.

I'm sure you want to be helpful. Please, get familiar with the tools. If someone knows nothing about noise removal software and they see your images, they might conclude there's little/no reason to buy noise removal software.

NIK DeFine works great. So does the noise reduction in Nikon Capture 4. If You only have photoshop you can use the despeckle under the filter menue. It works for some noise but not "all ". I like the NIK filter the best.
