yeah, maybe this has been beaten to death. But I've been back and forth through a couple of earlier threads, and I'd like to get a more up-to-date take on what y'all think on this.
I am working up some photos for print, probably just 4x6, 5x7, maybe some 8x10. A number of my earlier photos, especially with a flash in the hotshoe, have ended up with a fair amount of noise in them. The D5100 and its kindred, as I am given to understand, have a habit when set to auto-ISO to push flash shots into pretty high ISO values when they have a wide ISO range set in the ISO setup area. So I have a bunch of jpegs with varying amounts of noise I'd like to try to clean up.
So I've been reading up on three different products (1) Nik Dfine 2, (2) Neat Image and (3) Topaz Denoise 5 (as well as Topaz DeJpeg). I'd like to get you folks thoughts on these products. As a LR4 user, frankly I'm leaning towards Topaz, because they have a Fusion Express app that apparently lets you run the denoise et. al. from inside of Lightroom, without having to save a separate file that then has to be re-imported into LR.
But that doesn't mean that I don't want to hear what you think about any other software. Thanks in advance for your advice.
