IMO, not being an expert. I think Photoshop Elements takes the sharpness out of the image.

I would like to hear other oppinions.

IMHO it looks like Paintshop Pro 9 has more artifacts to it over Photoshop Elements 3.0

Here is an example of Noiseware Community Editiondone with full suppression.


This program is free also.

Ok, so what happens if you use the sharpen filter in Elements after you remove the noise? Is that a problem?

Here is your image worked with NeatImage, auto profile. I agree with you that the Elements version loses sharpness.

...and the 100% reduction of Helicon noisefilter (freeware version):

Reducing noise, always reduces sharpnesstoo; this can be fixed a bit by sharpening after filtering, but all thisproduces a real "stiff" image. Another problem is that noise removal also reduces detail quite severe.. Best thing I think would be to copy a selection of sky / other larger portion where noise irritates most into a new file; remove noise, and put thefiltered portion back in(a copy of) the original.Dirty job, but best for the end result.
