    good FREE prog for noise cleanup?

    Hi all,

    just wondering if anyone can suggest a good program or add-on to photoshop CS for cleaning up noise? Anything comparable to progs like Noise Ninja, etc., available for free?

    thanks.

    I know helicon noise filter was free. But I don't how customizable it is.

    Neat Image is a digital filter designed to reduce visible noise ... the Demo version is FREE and works quite well.

    The demo is OK. It does the job, but it limits you to JPG's and the downside to that is that you're recompressing the JPG again after you apply the filter...

    A working, non-demo version of Noise Ninja is free? Not last time I checked.

    True dat and I'm throughly satisfied with my XT's ISO 1600 images not to pay for Noise Ninja ... although it's a very good application. Rather if needed as I shoot in RAW so RSE has a built in Noise Reduction option that works quite well when needed.

    Picture Cooler, http://denoiser.shorturl.com/, is free and has gotten some good reviews. It can save in Tiff and BMP as well as JPEG, so the re-compression problems are not an issue.

    The version I tried overlaid the saved image with green lines kinda the same way Noise Ninja does.

    There are instructions on how to eliminate the green lines. You either pay a fee and register, or post a comment about the software on two bulletin boards and send an e-mail in with links to the threads. Either way, you will get a code back that will make the lines go away.

    So far, I really like the program.

    GIMP! How could people forget that. It does lots of things other than noise reduction and you can look at it as a reduced version of photoshop. Since its opensource you can download it for free
