    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.

                      Paint Shp Pro 9 has a noise reduction filter built in. I haven't seen it yet (the beta download is too big), but have heard some good comments about its capabilities.

                          I have only testet the demo version on a noise image from my d70 at iso 1600 and there it reduces the noise to an aceptable amount. if i took some time in ps afterwards, then it could proberply be removed almost if not completly. i would like to use the plugin version, but i havent got money for it, jet.
                          But ps itself can handle noise pretty well, although it takes some time to correct.
                          But yeah i could submit a couple of noisy test shoots too.

                                Neat Image v2 plugin and noise reduction
                                by DannyRaphael
                                If you haven't had the opportunity to try the latest version of Neat Image (version 2, which includes a Photoshop compatible plug-in), it's sure worth a look. Results-wise, I'm hearing it's as good as (or better than) Grain Surgery for a whole lot less $$. For existing users of Neat Image, upgrade options...

                                Neat Image 4.0
                                by Duv
                                I'm not sure if everyone is aware of it but Neat Image has recently released version 4. It's free to upgrade if you have your Pro or Pro + activation code.
                                I've just started playing with it and I can tell you the filtration is way better and everything works much much faster.

                                Here is one plug-in I can honestly say is a keeper. However before running down to the plug-in store and throwing a Large handfull of cash at the check-out folks, read on. If your work involves lots of masking and especially of the complicated nature, this plug-in is a great help. Having tried Corel...
