I know this has probably been asked but i can't find for the life of me a topic related too it.
I understand that this photo is underexposed originally as i did not take it, my girlfriend took it but i'm trying to make it work because this was probably the best photo of the day.
The photo in question had quite a fair bit of noise (for me anyway) so i did my adjustments in ACR (quite subtle really) a very very small amount of sharpening in ACR, then a very little amount of sharpening once imported into CS3. I then did a levels adjustment and then i used noise ninja. I don't normally fiddle with noise ninja as i just get lost in it usually and it makes it worse than auto profiling.
Once i used noise ninja it seemed to smooth it so that it was kind of like blotchy smoothness (in patches). Can anyone tell me how i can avoid this with other photos as i find that it happens quite regularly after i have sharpened it after running noise ninja. Its confusing me and frankly i'm getting annoyed I just can't seem to run noise ninja and sharpen after and have good results...
Is it just because its underexposed it brings it out more? I understand layer masks and the sort, but i was just hoping that i wouldnt have to paint this every single time with every image.
I also understand that you can select off certain areas you want noise ninja to remove noise but i honestly can't find it? Maybe i've skipped over it 10000 times and never realized.
Any help appreciated!
