Looking to export a photo into a third party app to remove noise from it. Am looking for suggestions on what other software is good to use, besides lightroom.

I really like Topaz Denoise 5 as it works great for banding.

This question just came up today. I've been using Noise Ninja for years and really like it, but would definitely be willing to try something else if one of the alternatives has been proven to be superior.

do you use the noise reduction software on the raw file or after it has been converted to jpeg?

It would be a bit pointless, IMHO, to process and convert the noise. Especially since I'd almost certainly want to sharpen the image on the way to becoming a JPEG, and I wouldn't want the noise sharpened. But maybe that's just me... :)

To me it depends how much noise is there to begin with . If it's a lot then i DeNoise first but if it's produced while PP or very little to start with i'll DeNoise afterwards before i go to jpeg . But i always do my DeNoise either in RAW or TIF format unless it's a jpeg image to start with ;) .
