Simple How To Reduce Noise In Photoshop & Camera Raw

Simple How To Reduce Noise In Photoshop & Camera Raw



There Is A Lot Of Noise In This Photo. 

What Digital Noise?

The dominant noise in the darker parts of an image from an image sensor is typically that caused by statistical quantum fluctuations, that is, variation in the number of photons sensed at a given exposure level. This noise is known as photon shot noise.

"The Devils In The Details" ---> Tab

Tip: Use These Settings To Remove The Noise… Not To Smooth The Details. Im Guilty Of That One in the past :) 


Remember You Never Want To Over Do anything. Be Subtitle.

Found Under The Same Tab. Use Sharpen To Get Back Some Details. Play Around With This, And Don’t Over Use.

In night Photography, Even outside, during the day, in many situations, you get a lot of noise in your photos. Let's look at a simple start out way to Get rid of that.

Go To Your Details Tab, And Locate Noise Reduction.

in This settings tab, you will find a few helpful settings for those grainy Photos.

Color Noise is always a problem in High ISO Photos, I’m Talking 1600 OR Above On Some Cameras, OR 6400 Or Above On More Expensive Models.



A Bit Of Info From Adobe Themselves


Adjusts edge definition. Increase the Amount value to increase sharpening. A value of zero (0) turns off sharpening. In general, set Amount to a lower value for cleaner images. The adjustment is a variation of Unsharp Mask, which locates pixels that differ from surrounding pixels based on the threshold you specify and increases the pixels’ contrast by the amount you specify. When opening a camera raw image file, the Camera Raw plug-in calculates the threshold to use based on camera model, ISO, and exposure compensation.


Adjusts the size of the details that sharpening is applied to. Photos with fine details generally need a lower setting. Photos with larger details can use a larger radius. Using too large a radius generally results in unnatural-looking results.


Adjusts how much high-frequency information is sharpened in the image and how much the sharpening process emphasizes edges. Lower settings primarily sharpen edges to remove blurring. Higher values are useful for making the textures in the image more pronounced.


Controls an edge mask. With a setting of zero (0), everything in the image receives the same amount of sharpening. With a setting of 100, sharpening is mostly restricted to those areas near the strongest edges. Press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) while dragging this slider to see the areas to be sharpened (white) versus the areas masked out (black).


Reduces luminance noise.


Luminance Detail

Controls the luminance noise threshold. Useful for noisy photos. Higher values preserve more detail but can produce noisier results. Lower values produce cleaner results but also remove some detail.


Luminance Contrast

Controls the luminance contrast. Useful for noisy photos. Higher values preserve contrast but can produce noisy blotches or mottling. Lower values produce smoother results but can also have less contrast.



Reduces color noise.


Color Detail

Controls the color noise threshold. Higher values protect thin, detailed color edges but can result in color specking. Lower values remove color speckles but can result in color bleeding.
