An excellent way of seeing how well of a job this does it to split the leopard image and see if you can get the same results as the one that has been processed. I've tried duplicating the Leopard before and after images. The resulting image is improved but nowhere near the degree as the sample shows. Try this experiment to see if anyone can come up with the same settings used to get the really clean version of the leopard. I'd like to know what they used to achieve the clean version.

When defining the types of digital photo noise types and they use the term "holes" do they mean dead pixels as opposed to always on hot pixels? I was not aware there are just 7 types of noise in photos. What about with scanned analogue photos? film grain noise. Or photos taken by NASA, outside the atmosphere, with cosmic ray noise?

Several people noted registration difficulties earlier in the day. I have numerous Franzis programs from previous GotD offerings and using the same e-mail address / Franzis User ID (customer number) the install & registration was fast & easy.

I do not have any of the Adobe programs which could use it as a plugin, so just tested it in stand-alone mode. The interface is very similar to their HDR Projects 4. I tested it on a scanned 35mm film photo taken on a cheap point-&-shoot in 1983. It was an outdoor shot taken after sunset so was very dark and grainy. The scan, unsurprisingly, has a lot of noise in it, mostly visible when you're zoomed in. When I opened the image with DENOISE projects, it automatically started working on it, figuring out for itself what it thought was the best option for noise reduction. While it didn't make the photo look good, a look at it zoomed in showed that almost all the noise (thousands of tiny off-white pixels) was gone, with only the barest amount of detail softened. (To be fair, the original is so poor and muddy, there's really not much that can be done. The old GIGO issue.)

So my experience is that it was easy to install, easy to use, and did exactly what it said it would do. If you're thinking of trying it, I would say it is definitely worth the time & submitting an an e-mail address. Thank you again GotD team and Franzis!

Note: I did do a screenshot of one of your examples to try to duplicate your shown results after de-noising, and could not even get close to the great results your program did. I used my Corel PSP 2020 32bit version. I tried the many De-noise options to test the difference.
I downloaded this. Took a pretty long time to download the 112 MB's. I am on cable so normally on my side I get that much quickly. After downloading I liked that you have a lot of plugin 64 or 86 bit options to use in programs. I use Corel PSP 32 bit plugins (yes they have a 64 bit version as well, but most of my wanted plugins are for 32 bits). So I deleted this before proceeding further. So, not for me and what I am comfortable using but I"d say it is a cool program for others to use.

Doyle Allen, I know this is not a current GOTD, but the program interests me so I'm reading through the comments. Would like to observe that I would think the data available for the program to analyze and work off of in a screenshot would be sorely lacking compared to an original photo data/metadata file. I would also think that might greatly affect the results.

If you don't have Denoise projects yet, assuming you edit images, this is probably worth getting.

I bought Denoise projects Pro 2 -- I'm still undecided about their new Pro 3 -- and use it quite a bit via P/Shop. Using it that way is a little bit slow, waiting for the app to open and analyze the photo, but keep the results on a layer I can modify or discard. While it works [or obviously I wouldn't use it], at default settings the results are not nearly as dramatic as the images on their product pages suggest. While I can amp up the settings, doing so usually has side effects elsewhere.

To describe the results I get, I need to start with the basics... Camera sensors, & the pattern [grain] of chemicals deposited on film negatives & prints, vary in sharpness. As you zoom in on a photo in an image editor, the less sharp the image the more you can see blobs of colored pixels. With some cameras the colors of those blobs is far from uniform, achieving colors by blending rather than showing the true colors more naturally -- same as how a printer works to print green by blending blue and yellow. At any rate, using Denoise projects doesn't eliminate those blobs -- doing so would make the photo even less sharp -- but it does consolidate them, making the tiniest blobs & stray pixels match their larger neighbors.

It does help the overall appearance of many photos -- it helps most all of our old prints I'm scanning -- but Franzis' advertising exaggerates to put it politely. You are not going to get the same results as a mid to high range Canon or Nikon or Sony camera unless you use one of those Canon or Nikon or Sony cameras. You can't unblend pixels any more than you can unblend a drink. ;)

I've been using Neat Image for years. It's a is a Denoise program that is free for personal use. It does a great job. I highly recommend it.

Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Gary, current version is NOT free for personal use but is Freemium for personal use in that the free edition is a DEMO and feature limited and you only get premium features like HDR image processing and drag and drop and more number of images in batch processing buy paying for one of the commercial licenses. That said because there is no mention of it adding any watermark and it is available as standard photoshop plugin that supports any standard PS plugin host software it looks promissing and potentially useful since most mobile phones that do no support HDR photo taking also have problems with low light noise from the sensors and this claims to adaptively process images.

NOTE in those matricies there are superscript Notations 1,2,3 and 4 on some of the items but I cannot see any text describing what those notations mean.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

TK, just been trying the Free Demo plugin of Neat Image and it is very effective BUT it has a significant limitation in that the largest area it will process is 1600 x 1600 pixels which is quite small for even old smart phone cameras. It also does not seem to allow us to save custom profiles for different camera sensors so if the target image does not have an area that has consistent colour or luminance it will compromise it's abaility to auto generate a profile for the sensor used to take that digital photo. But where it is used with suitable images it can really clean up noisy skin tones or single colour walls that have visible noise. Definatly not just a simply smoothing algorithim.

TK, oops my mistake there are two buttons above the custom profile name that allow one to save as and open a custom profile.

Installed per instructions. Install said I didn't have a compatible copy of LR or PS, which I do--I have an active install and account of LR Classic, LR CC, and the last two versions of PS CC on my computer.

So what is not compatible?

In addition, I ran it standalone, and on my 30" 4k monitor, the menu font is approximately 4pt. Just slightly above what I would need a magnifying glass to see.

Program downloaded, installed properly and registration was fine. It says I didn't have a copy of Adobe Elements installed. But I do, Elements 2020, the newest version. Does DENOISE not recognize this version of Elements?

Tom Bedwell, Probably not as this version of Denoise is quite old. The plugins for elements mention 11, 12, 13 & 14 only.

Tom Bedwell,

I've found that I often have to copy/paste the plug-ins into the correct folder for whatever image editing app manually. I've also found that with some image editing apps it works better to have the plug-ins in the same folder as whatever Franzis app, then put shortcuts to them in the plug-in folder for the image editor.

The registration procedure doesn't work. There is no blue button "Request registration code". And the only thing that works is the "forgot password" option. I have had top click that to receive an email with the link to create a new password (although I did not have a previous account!) Then, with that password, I have been able to log in and request a registration code. I have received immediately a new email with the codes. Fine. But when I try to use it, I see a "Wrong registration code!" dialog. So, for me, it is impossible to register the program. Pity, as it looks interesting.

Reply   |   Comment by rol  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

rol, When using copy and paste blocking the ID and PW must be exact. By that I mean you haven't accidentally added any extra blank spaces which as been known to happen. Start with the ID 1st and then the PW because you will be required to enter the PW again when the program starts. Since the PW is already in your clipboard all you have to do is paste. It's a great program so try installing again.

Thanks, Tester ! I have understood the problem. I have seen that there are two other giveaway available at the Franzis home page, and I have tried to register Denoise with the key for HDR. Now, everything works fine, and I have installed the 3 giveaways without problem. :-)
However, the fact is that the page to request the key is misleading, as you have to ask to reset your password to be able to register, even when it's the first time you visit the site. That's very strange, but luckily the new password did the trick.

Georgios, please see my earlier replay to #1
Try to avoid "strange" letters or signs in folder or file names. It should be done starting with the root folder ( the very first one you open )
Hi All, after doing a small research I have found solution which works (in my case at least). It seems to work also with other programs from FRANZIS (HDR#4, PhotoBUZZER).
Solution: your file or folder names should not contain some special/specific signs/letters which cannot be recognized by the software.
EXAMPLE: After renaming folder ZDJĘCIA to ZDJECIA all pictures located in this folder can be seen and opened. In this specific case replacing "Ę" with "E" did the trick.
I hope this advise will help.

Good noise reduction! a keeper.

2 points:
1. installation stops searching for photoshop after finding first version. People keep CS6 AND current.
2. can't handle filenames with foreign characters (fails to open).

Downloaded and installed with no problems. Registration isn't as straight forward as many, but ok. Signed up for the newsletters which I will later unsubscribe. The email with the codes came quickly and I just copied and pasted the codes where indicated on the registration form.

This is a later version than my previous DOTD, but I didn't detect changes while casually clicking around. It still doesn't support drag and drop which ought to be part of any graphic program.

I didn't work with the image I tested - accepted Denoise suggestion. I know that there are a great many ways of cleaning an image in the program, but I was just lazy. In the past when an image is beyond my usual noise cleaner I've found an acceptable method in Denoise. In other words, I'm an occasional user.

I loaded a picture of the Virginia mountains with a bridge in the foreground. The suggested cleaning resulted in an image that looked like a Thomas Hart Benton painting. The sharp leaves were softened into smooth patches of greens and the rolling mountains looked like they were covered in green cotton balls. The steel of the bridge became smooth and the rust became spreading pools reminiscent of a watercolor painting.

Now, I know that I could have gotten a much more acceptable image by using the copious adjustments that Denoise offers. But I accepted what the program suggested for the sake of this comment. The resulting photo actually is my current desktop wallpaper. It serves that purpose very well, but the image would not be acceptable for a document illustrating the summer foliage on the Appalachians near Walton's mountain.

Dave, Err "_" is a perfectly fine ASCII character! It's legal but non-standard file and folder name characters it cannot cope with in the paths to a file... pretty basic fail. e.g non English characters that are completely supporte by windows and OS-X but not this program.

Nigel, regardless of intended license duration, which with this GAOTD contributor is normally non-expiring license in same version, almost no giveaway has ever been without any restriction ever. e.g standard GAOTD restrictions usually apply Strictly Personal Usage and no entitlement to free updates, no entitlement to free technical support and no re-install rights after the giveaway event period. Other restrictions may also be added by contributing vendors and some of those boiler plate restrictions may not be enforced on particular giveaways at the contributing vendors requests.

Also their English Language manuals are amazingly good for a German company... someone really puts the effort in.
