I have heard dozens of people swearing by LR3's noise reduction abilities. My question is this: what about ACR's noise reduction? I dont have lightroom but i do have ACR which is from the same company so i assume it uses the same methods. I am up to date and using the latest version, so how does it compare to LR3 noise removal?
i have used topaz denoise 3 & 5 plugins and find that topaz denoise 5 is not as good as ACR noise removal and topaz denoise 3 is actually the best in my opinion provided the noise levels are low to begin with. If the noise is bad then it shows worm like artefacts.
So what else is out there that does a good job and which one is truelly the best?
