Neat Image

Just curious to who has Neat Image and what version, pros, cons and so on. So share your thoughts and alternatives.

Pro +, just upgraded from Home + when I got a new scanner that does 48 bit scans. It makes restorations much easier...

I have the Pro edition. With my Nikon D100, I've programmed in profiles from 200 ISO up to Nikon Hi2. So far I'm pretty happy with the results although there are images where I end up with less than stellar results. I need to learn more about adjusting the settings. Wasn't aware of the PS plugin version. Will check it out.

Cheers
Dave

Those of you with a plus version. Is it worth the extra money to have it as a PhotoShop plugin vs. just opening the program separately?

I prefer Noise Ninja, so can't respond to your poll. A Mac version has just been released, but it doesn't have a plugin version as yet.

I use ASF (now Kodak) Digital GEM.

This might be an excellent opportunity to compare the various outputs. Anyone have a noisy yet detailed image to post? We can all run it through our various magic filters.

Great idea Doug! I'll post two images later this afternoon, one with noise and the other with a moire pattern. I will also start a new thread for this comparison.

The advantage of having the Neat Image plugin, is most notably, that you can keep your image in lossless, psd format. It's also much more convenient.

I have the pro version and have found that it provides numerous controls to adjust/fine-tune it's effects. In some cases the results have been extremely impressive, in other cases good to very good. I like the ease and convienence of the plug-in.

I have the Plus version, and I think the convenience and automation that comes from having a plugin makes it worth the money. I've tried Noise Ninja, and was very impressed. But it could not match Neat Image on my test images. Except for one, where Noise Ninja's local contrast adjuster gave it the edge. I am also very impressed with NoiseWare. The ease of use is great. And on one image I actually preferred the way it handled the chroma noise. So it is now in the toolkit too.
