Re: Noise Ninja hand holding

Thanks Craig. This looks a lot better. Even though I have Photoshop CS3, it looks like I will purchase Paint Shop Pro X2 if for nothing more than being an interim step to my getting fully familiar with it (and who knows if that will ever happen).

Grrrr... Craig, I downloaded unshake and required Java but could not get Unshake to launch for some reason. Oh well.

Re: Noise Ninja hand holding

corkster, you're welcome.

dont know why unshake wouldnt work. if you've got and installed the runtimes for java, and those are up to date, unshake shld work fine. which file did you use to try to run unshake? you need to double click the 'launch' file to run it. so, if you've got java and that's working and up to date, then the only other reason i know of that would screw things up is if you got a corrupted or incomplete download of unshake and you could simply try a new download.

Re: Noise Ninja hand holding

I have tried my hand at this one as well and well, I let you judge of the result.

I have used several plugins, Xero Improver, Mehdi Flat Median which is essential to the actual result, Photoplugins Contrast Mask to highlight darker areas a bit, Alois Zingl Sharpen and maybe also Xero Clarity.

All this had the result to also emphasize some of the noise by transforming it in rather big and ugly greenish blotches over the hair and face.

I then cleaned up that as best as I could with a mixture of median filter and hue brush on certain areas of the skin. For the hairs I choose to colorize them.

At that point I also colorized the background in order to get a more vivid and warmer image.

Finished with a slight brightness/contrast adjustment.

I am not too displeased with the result.

Re: Noise Ninja hand holding

lets just say... as a thumbnail it looks nice.

Regarding noise ninja, you can pretty much just open it and click apply, its really simple but this image is more blurry over noisy.
