I went to try out Neat Image but there is not yet a version for Mac users
But it is in development.

Dfine has versions for both PC and Mac users

Dfine

I have both Neatimage and Dfine - I tend to use Dfine more as it works within PS - if Neatimage were a plugin.....

Neatimage works on the whole image so not so easy to control unless you save a copy of your image - run Neatimage and paste the new version back over your original and use a layer mask to mask out any areas you dont like.

Dfine does have a lot more options and I think tends to be a bit more subtle in what it does.

Hi Christine,

Thanks for writing. I've been trying out the Dfine demo a bit lately and I like it. What is very good is that you can adjust the opacity of the filter which often makes a very big difference. The downside for me is that it often takes a rather long time for the filters to load and sometimes I don't have the patience. But maybe this is just something with my own computer. Do others have this experience?

Overall though Dfine sounds better than Neat Image....

Diane

Dfine

Hi Diane,

Dfine takes about 30 seconds to load on my PC, would be nice if it was quicker.

Thats on a 1800mhz P4 with 1Gb Ram.

Hi Christine,

Oh my, did you say 1800 mhz with 1 gb of Ram??

I'm at 700 mhz with about 628 of Ram and I did buy my ibook just a little over 1 year ago!

Just to make sure we're on the same page: let's say you wanted to use the dfine filter for the worst noise on a very large image at a resolution of let's say 400dpi; about how long would it take to load that filter?

I hadn't even heard that we're up to 1800 mhz these days!

Thanks for the info,
Diane

Hi Diane

On an image that is 13 x 17 @ 400dpi the dfine skin filter took just over 2 minutes to load. Time enough to put the kettle on.

When dfine loads a filter it actually creates a new layer and processes the whole image which is masked out with a layer mask. The brush strokes just erase the mask. If you have the layers pallet open you can see the layer and mask. Also if you step backward after accepting the process (which merges the layer down) you can restore the layer and mask.
