"I guess you know about the method of removing chromatic aberrations using a blurred layer set to color mode and then using mask?"

I really don't want to write another 300 words on that method. That's way above my pay grade.
But you can find it in the forums. :)

Mudplucker, I am just a book of knowledge right now, maybe. I'm trying to be a photo album of knowledge though. I will have a huge port sooner or later and join the big guys we admire so much. I'm one of the crazy guys who doesn't back off, whatever happens.

Interesting blog about digital noise but I think you should be looking at the quality of glass (lens) you are using, it must be a very slow lens. One helpful hint might be to get a good tripod and a 4 second shutter is easily handled and you can shoot at 200 asa!
Thus doing away with excessive digital noise.
Another thing one should use noise reduction siftware that not part of RAW processing you will get a much better end image as there are limitations to noise reduction within a RAW processor, like Adobe RAW.

Exactly, but what if you cannot really use a shutter speed longer than 1/60 second? And your good lens still isn't wide enough? That's what the article is about. I have been frustrated many times because of these situations.
Regarding noise reduction, better to always use the manufacturer's own RAW processor rather than generic ones like Adobe RAW because they use generic noise removal algorithm supposed to work properly with everything rather than work best with each one. The generic ones would work great as long as you don't stretch them too far.
