Hi there,

Yesterday night, I made a small walk, and suddenly found a very handy and quick way to get rid of noise, without loosing the sharpness and detail :-))))

I have created an album on my pbase account, with full explanation and example photos: http://www.pbase.com/tvpopta/noise_removal

Works great

-> Maybe I should have put this idea in the tips 'n tricks forum, but I just felt like sharing it with my FZ family

Cheers, GB

Interesting trick... I wonder if NeatImage lets you apply the noise removal to a selection in a layer. Never tried. That's basically what you're doing.

Never thought about doing this...but it sounds like a very good idea. I know what you mean, sometimes, I wish I could only remove some of the noise and not the whole picture..I guess one can do it this way.

Thats indeed the idea;

I've used the free version of neat image for a while, but I never found the option. Now I'me using Helicon noisefilter, because it works ten times faster.

If you have Paint Shop Pro 9. It's noise removal does pretty well and retains the sharpness as well.

Here is your Pic #1 using noise removal from Paint Shop Pro 9

baron .......thats a great idea!!!!!

i have also used the magic wand or the freehand tool in (PSP 9)to do the same things after you select the area you want to reduce the noise in then go to the remove noise tool and make the adjustments.. then you have the same results............this works greatbecause psp 9 has the noise remove tool built in....:G

:-)Yes I do exactly this with Photoimpact using the lasso tool and using what it calls "Edge preserving blur". Just invert the lasso.

Well done and it saves the main subject.:-)

Danny....good pointer!!!!

yes for all that don't have psp 9 what Danny has laid out here is a excellent way to remove noise from a section of a photo... "Edge preserving blur" or even" median filter" works well...........

As the "Barontechnique" sounds and looks like a great idea too.....
