Would be difficult for anyone to help not knowing which new program the moderator suggested .....

The moderator is 'moi' .... and talking about Neat Image, most of the time, its default settings (which I guess were what you used) are even a bit too strong for my taste, but this picture is surely an extreme case ....

You'll have to change/tweak the settings until you find the right combination .... It would be useless for me to give you the values I used since, probably, the images we are working on have a different resolution ... I just wanted to show you that it can be done even when the noise is as extreme as in your picture.

I found Neat Image help file very useful ... and you could try this link on their site for further help on the usage of the program...

Then help please

lol It was neat image and I found it to be rather confusing. When I would adjust settings I really couldn't see changes. I can be patient with a lil help but I'm going into this plugin kinda blind. I also tried it at 3 in the morning think that had anything to do with it? The pic you actually changed is the one I corrected. The orginal is the one to the right. To make my correction I did the layer screen method a few times and tried the Neat image program.

Noise Reduction

This image has strong color noise. Prior to applying a noise filter I would convert the file from RGB to LAG and apply a Gaussian Blur of 9 to both the A and the B channel. Then I would run a noise filter like Noise Ninja or Neat Image on the L channel or use Photoshop CS2's Noise Reduction Filter on the L channel. Below are examples of both with very minimal amount of blurring applied and no other adjustments to your posted image..
Regards,
Murray

gee, I forgot the steps....

this was a hard one for me......I left the image as low key for effect.
dumb question but does the woman origanally have red on her face and body?
oh well, if not I couldn't get rid of the color noise.
Used neat image to help with some of the noise

I used a simple method to correct this photo:
- Adjustments Levels, Color Balance
- Noise>Despeckle
- Noise>Reduce noise
- Blending mode of the layer > Lighten

...I used your corrected version on purpose because I thought you wanted to get rid of the noise in that one!!! ....

Here is my corrected and denoised version starting from your original...

P.S....It's quite late to start now, but I'll post a detailed explanation on how I used Neat Image first thing tomorrow morning...
