Are there any good, substantial actions out there for noise?

and if you don't have Photoshop, download Gimp wich is an open source program (and free), and use their different noise reduction methods.

I use that alot. Here is two ways of doing it,in a great tutorial: http://www.gimpguru.or​g/Tutorials/ReducingCC​DNoise/ (external link)

Always use layer when you edit youre pictures.

When using despeckle, I always start with radius at 1. That takes away most of the most irritating noise (without making the image unsharp). The higher the level, the more you also delete parts of the picture that you actually want there. To get rid of the rest, try different values on it. Test also by bluring out the spots that are to noisy, with the second method. To avoid getting the picture to blured out, put a mask on it and paint away the blur from the areas that you need sharp... like eyes and edges.

As the last adjustment I would adjust the transparancy of the level with my noise reduction. Normaly it turns out that I blur out much more than actually needed. By making the layer transparent I find the right balance.

Afther that I normaly sharpen the picture, and if I am lucky I have managed to sharpen it without bringing new noise into the picture.


Living in Austria, I am so glad that there is stuff like Gimp out there...
I am a happy giver, so if you find any misspelling in my text, you can keep them... :)

With the 50D as long as you expose correctly you don't need noise reduction. Judge your images by the prints, not in Photoshop at 100%.
