    Does anyone know of a good noise removal program?

    I have just taken photos of my cousin (who was born this morning) and I didn't want to use the flash on my 300D on her as it is so damn bright! I used it a couple of times and scared the crap out of her both times.

    I was lucky enough to be there for her first bath and didnt dare use the flash with the nurse around (she was kinda grumpy i thought). So I set the ISO to 1600 and got some pretty good shots (apart from the noise).


    So I desperately want something to lessen the noise. I don't think it will show up in 4x6's - but I still don't like it.

    Thanks for any help you can give me :)

    You can take a picture with the lens cap on at the same settings as your photo, and create a "noise profile". Then paste this image in a new layer above your image, and set the blend mode to exclusion. I haven't tried this, but apparently it works well. It will probably soften the image, as will neat image, or any other noise removal program.

    Noise ninja is another one to try.

    I think Noise Ninja and Neat Image are the two of the more popular noise reduction software. I use Noise Ninja and have gotten great results.
