Noise Ninja Beta

A new Noise Ninja release candidate is out now for Linux, Mac and Windows!

I tried the Linux version, and despite having a strange file selector it worked really well! You can try it for yourself, but the unregistered version saves images with a watermark. I’m going to test it on a few more images and may purchase it myslf.
Make sure you download a camera profile for your camera. The 20D one works well!

Hey Donncha,

Are you happy with Noise Ninja on Linux? I have a copy of NeatImage on my windows partition but I can’t seem to get it to run properly under Wine (even though their site claims that it does). Have you tried any other noise reduction methods under Linux? If so, please let me know.

I haven’t used it since I tried the beta above and to be honest I’ve never been very happy with noise reduction. It makes images look washed out with large blotches of colour in my experience. I did look at open source noise reduction plugins too, but again. I don’t mind too much noise, and sometimes, especially with b/w, it can look good!
