Noise Ninja tips

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I just bought Noise Ninja and I'm looking for any tips anyone may have for using it.

Thanks in advance.

Mike, make sure you download and install the ISO profiles for your camera from the Noise Ninja Web site. That way when you tell the program to profile the image it'll have the right profile. They're free and easy to install (instructions included). 'Course, maybe you already did that. grin

I haven't played around much with it at all, just usually using default settings, which has worked very well.

I also rarely use it to remove noise from the main portion of my subject, like a face, because it tends to soften things just slightly. So I do a lot of lassoing and selective noise reduction on shadows and some mid range areas when needed.

The first thing to do is go to their site and download the profile for your camera. It will make the noise removal more accurate.

Go easy on using it globally, it has a tendency to make skin look plastic and if used strongly can knock a lot of detail out.

It does work good if you use it only on selected parts of your photo such as a background. I also use it for sharpening, if you are interested in that technique let me know I can e-mail you the settings, though they are specific to the Mark IIN. Some experimenting will get you close though.

Hope that helps.

Ok, so I have the image open in Photoshop. I open the noise ninja filter. Now I click on "Profiles" and I load the appropriate profile for the ISO and camera? Is that right? Is that all there is to in unless I need to mess around with it some?

Thanks

Mike, I'm going from memory here, but I think that's all you have to do. You MAY have to close PS and reopen it once the profiles are loaded, but I'm not sure.

The directions, as I recall, are there on the NN site where you download the profiles.

Did you load profiles not only for the D80 but for your older camera(s) so you can do finer NN work on your older images?

I got the profiles loaded from the HSOforum. Just making sure I am processing the image correctly. Thanks for reminding me, I'll download the profiles for the D50 as well. Great idea. I know I have images that I could save from that one.

Thanks

Mike I actually use different numbers than the default numbers because I also do use NN for sharpening at times. They really are camera specific though. Don't be afraid to mess with a few of them to see how it affects your shots. You can always set it back to the default and start over again.

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
