Best for Removing Grain

Hi, was wondering, I have some photos shot with a 5D in awful light. These are wedding shots. The 5D went all crazy and shot at ISO 2500. What's the best software to remove the grain? I tried neat image and it does OK, really clunky though, I can't believe they haven't updated the interface in at least the last 8 years.

How bad is it? LR & ACR have some noise reduction ... but Imagenomic's Noiseware is a bit more comprehensive. Nik can be used as well.

Try Imagenomic's standalone Noiseware or in the latest Camera Raw try noise removal.

Re: Best for Removing Grain

It's pretty bad. I didn't take the photos. If you can imagine terribly yellow backlight, overhead from a chandelier AND on camera flash that appears to have fired from about 5 feet too far away with an ISO of 2500. I mean the 5D is awesome but there's only so much it can do. I'm trying to stay away from the LR or PS noise reduction and looking for something that will target the grain without hitting and reducing things like pores and eyelashes. It's a job and I don't want to spend forever masking.

I have found Imagenomic's Noiseware works the best.
Remove the filter with masks on special spots like the eyes.
It looks perfect after printing.

Noiseware is very good, also Topaz DeNoise. See URL in sig for info on both (with sample images) and discounts off both.

Is there any possibility of posting a full size section of the image including areas of detail and the problem noise
