Removing Noise? Use a Surface Mask

The "Tip of the Week" on my site demonstrates how to use a surface mask when removing noise. Keeping noise removal away from edges prevents it from softening your images.

I find removing noise in color lab mode is one of the easyest ways and does a good job. together with neat image that is 2 quick ways and does the job good, but i will definatly look into your way of doing it, when i get home.

i have just the right image to test it on. Noisy image .Ofcause there the noise was added to make mood, but it could be fun to try and remove it agen
i will also test it on the normal noise i try to remove.

Thanks for the tip.

I agree with the others. Great tip. I don't know why the light didn't dawn earlier. Your tip makes perfect sense.
