Thanks! For your effort to educate us. One best noise reduction tool you forgot to mention is Topaz Denoise.This is above all in my openion. Just try it! it works for all sitautions even for jpeg as well as raw files and has lots of control, which you might not get anywhere. One more thing Topaz Dejpeg is not for noise but for removing artifacts due to compression in jpeg files. Still struggling with grainy noise in low light conditions which takes away all the details. Topaz denoise is quite helpful but i want it from the camera itself. If anyone has solution please mention!

The DeJPEG doesn't really remove artifacting either. I'd not suggest anyone to use it for stock imagery related purposes.

Useful. Thanks.
Please consider also using selective noise removing. Not all parts of a photo need noise reduction. Lightroom is a relatively cheap software, is made by Adobe and in the last version you have noise reduction brushes. Excellent tools, simply paint only that zones where you have noise and select the amount of noise reduction.

Thank you for sharing your experience. As for me, after trying several tools for the noise removing (including NeatImage and built-in PS tool) I have chosen Noise Ninja. The most effective noise removing and minimum artefacts. Besides it's very flexible and has lot of settings.

Igor, right. Thanks for backing up the opinion. Any more suggestions or discussions should also benefit readers.
Alvera, I use the regioselective noise removal too. Noise Ninja has that brush thing. The software probably costs $20 something if I remember. You can try that out too. And otherwise I apply noise reduction on one layer and use mask feature. Saves the cost of buying Lightroom too.

Thanks for the tips! I have DPP, but haven't opened it in a year. I'll have to revisit it.

Wonderful blog, Pratik!! We're using Topaz Denoise at the moment and and for us it wins hands down!! :) it's a bit slow on laptop while processing a 24mp photograph but on the faster PC it performs very fast and accurate. :)

Thanks for the suggestion. It's useful for someone still using, ahem, Photoshop Despeckle.

I find that a mono pod folds up very small and can be used in situations like this. Or rest the camera on a pew.

Very interesting Blog but no mention of the Noise reduction tool used by a huge number of professionals, Neat Image, runs as a plug in for Photoshop also runs as a standalone Application. I use it on a daily basis as aprt of my workflow.

I haven't tried out Neat Image yet and have no personal experience to mention. These tools already help deal with most situations. Please include your version of its review in a comment and I would be happy to append it to the article to make it more useful. Thank you.

Robinstockphotos, rather than me give you a rough review, here is a link to Dpreview one of the better sites for camera and software reviews.

Nice article Pratik. I shoot now the way Yuri told me and have not had to do any noise removal at all my last 36 images I have put online. that is: shoot RAW, all neutral picture settings in camera, no in camera sharpening. Then i set all settings needed in my Canon DPP, save as 8 bit TIFF (not 16) and finish up in PS, making the sharpening the very LAST thing done before saving as jpeg. This virtually eliminates artifacts in photos as well. So for me if it requires more than 400 iso i just don't shoot it.
