  • GREYCstoration - Open source denoising algorithms

    Cheers everyone,

    I'm an aspiring photographer, still new to the world of photoshop, so I would like to introduce myself. Hopefully by pointing something new and useful. I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this program:

    Link goes to the demonstration page. You can also download the program for free as well. Some of the examples look very impressive. What do you guys think?


    PS. I hope it is somewhat new to some of you guys at least ;-)

    Hello Greg and welcome to RP.

    Interesting stuff; news to me. Have you given it a go yet?

      Yes I have. Just playing around.

      I used to do a lof of black and white photography, sometimes when you make a mistake (ehem.. do it on purpose of course) with the temperature of the developer you'll get very grainy results.

      I've tried the greyc program on one of those photos. It's slow, and it takes several iterations and some trial and error to get decent results, but once you get them.. they're amazing.

      I don't think it's ready to be part of a regular workflow, because of the speed and inconvenience of using it (saving to tiff, running external program, figuring out proper parameters, etc). Still, it may be the best way to save certain "special" images when the alternative is to just about reconstruct everyting. At least it can come up with a decent starting point for further reconstruction.

          Just read this from a link from Slashdot. GEGL looks like cool stuff and an easy way to work interactively with an image. I do not know if you will be able to save your "trees", but I'm assuming you will. If so, this will be an answer to PS's Actions.

          When I bought my computer about 5 months ago, I decided to put more money into the hardware instead of buying lots of expensive software, and waiting until I could afford all the programs I wanted. but actually I ended up only really spening money on the operating system (which was included in the...

          This isn't really a review, more of a heads-up.

          For Windows users, you really should check out IrfanView. This adorably quirky little program is incredibly handy. Not an editor like Photoshop or PaintshopPro or others like that, but a graphics viewer with some additional handy utilities....
