Noise Ninja

->> Noise Ninja doesn't work on a MAC with CS6 as there is no 64 bit version. They keep promising a new product, supposedly just around the corner. That was in February. Anyone know what's up with them? Any suggested alternatives?

->> I have been using Topaz Denoise on troublesome images in the interim awaiting a 64 bit solution from NN ... Though that is rare that I need to use it since the advancements in Lightroom/ACR noise reduction in the RAW conversion process ... you can set ACR to open jpegs as well to apply the NR ...

->> Have you tried using the noise reduction in CS6? I've been using the noise reduction in LR 4 and find it works very well. It's improved significantly from what it was in the past.

->> I would agree that the noise reduction in LR4 is quite good. I have Noise Ninja and Neat Image but have not used them for some time.

->> I got tired of waiting for the NN 64bit to come out and they keep saying they are working on it. Well I finally gave up tried the noise reduction in CS5 and now CS6 and I actually like the results much better then NN. The images don't seem to be as pasty looking as they did coming out of NN.

->> I, too, have been waiting in vain for a 64 bit version of Noise Ninja, and like others above, have just about given up. How long has the 64 bit version of Photoshop been out? Quite a while, if I'm not mistaken.

I received a cryptic email from Picture Code a few months ago that told me the upgrade was coming "soon", and that it would be a substantial redesign that, among other things, would eliminate the need for camera-ISO-specifc profiles. Whatever…just release the dang thing. You're losing customers due to this delay, not to mention the fact that Photoshop's resident noise reduction is catching up to your plug-in, while your loyal customers wait, and wait, and wait for a version of the product that can be used with the latest version of PS.

->> Sorry to revive an old thread.

I recently switched to CS6 and find myself missing Noise Ninja.

The CS6 noise reduction is a huge improvement over previous versions, but I find it poorly handles some situations.

I'm looking into buying topaz, any other suggestions?

->> I'll check it out. Thanks.

Currently comparing demos of Neat Image and Topaz. I think Topaz is way to slow for my uses.

What I'm finding I'm missing most is using Noise Ninja for sharpening. I found it did a great job at sharpening files in the 3200-6400 range without exaggerating the noise.
