AKVIS Noise Buster 8.5
AKVIS Noise Buster - AKVIS Noise Buster is software for noise suppression on digital and scanned images.
Digital cameras opened the door to easy and entertaining photography. However, consumer digital cameras also have their drawbacks: they often produce the so-called digital noise. It can be seen as grains that compromise the smoothness of the photo. It is especially annoying on the skin as it makes it uneven. This kind of noise is called luminance noise. There can also be chroma (color) noise which is perceived as random red and blue pixels spoiling the color accuracy of the snap-shot.
Digital noise can be produced by a number of factors: heating of the camera sensor, long exposure shooting, small pixel size (therefore digital compact cameras generate much noisier images than digital SLRs), high ISO settings, etc.
AKVIS Noise Buster reduces both luminance and color noise on digital images without spoiling other aspects of the photo. Now your photos look neat and accomplished.
There is an option of automatic filtering based on the analysis of the overall image noise. If not quite satisfied, you can tweak the parameters observing the changes in real time in the preview window.
The program's window shows Before and After images for instant preview and easy tweaking of the parameters. You can switch between the windows with a click on the image. Separate setting areas for luminance and chroma noise allow you to deal with each kind of noise in the most efficient way. For further adjustment you have a few advanced parameters at your disposal.
The histogram displaying the noise level and noise components of the loaded image will help you to adjust settings.
AKVIS Noise Buster is available in two editions: as an independent application (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor: Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel (Jasc) Paint Shop pro, etc.
The plugin supports Batch Processing that allows applying the same settings to a folder full of images.

Busted the noise in my photos
I took some photos from my camera phone yesterday at a get-together with some of my friends. However, when I came home and viewed them on my computer, I was dissapointed at the noise level. So I searched on Google and along came AKVIS Noise Buster to the rescue. It really improved the photos. Keep up the good work !!!!!
