  • Great Noise Reducer Program...

    http://helicon.com.ua/pages/index.php?id=347

    Haven't had any time to get some shots at an ISO other than 100 but the results I've seen are great. Doesn't produce to much of a blur unlike Neat Image.

    Equipment: A camera (who gives a rip about the brand?)

    I checked it. The first results were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!!!!!

    I have to take a further look at it, before using it regularely.

      why should you use it regularely? The D60 does not have much grain at ISO 100....I hardly ever use neatimage...

        Sorry, poor wording from my side. I hardly ever use neatimage myself as well. What I meant was, that I first have to know, how this proposed piece of software works, how the results are for different kind of pics, before using it as tool, when I need to reduce noise.

        This can happen with pics taken on foggy days for example.

        As said, I use neat image on very rare occasions, but it's good to know, that there is a tool, which can help me i extreme conditions.

        I can tell you more ybout this, when we meet at ZRH next time :P :P

            Hi everyone, First post here so be kind!

            I just downloaded helicon and it just saved a photo from going in the bin, (just) You should see the original

            It's one I took about 10 years ago under runway 34L at Kingsford Smith. I used my trusty old minolta 3xi with OEM 100-300 lens. I scanned it tonight with my cannon 5000F scanner at 1200 DPI. (note to self....Get more RAM!)

            I don't have one worthy of uploading to the site proper yet, so until I do, I hope you guys and gals don't mind if I keep bugging for Q's



            I know the wings are chopped, the original has the tip of one cut off, but when I leveled it (sort of), a process I didn't even know about till I found this forum, I had to trim it more.

            Could you guys comment on the image and let me know what else I can do to improve it?

            I know nothing about most of the terms you use, but I'll keep reading the posts.

            I have just bought an olympus C-750 and whilst it takes fine pics, I haven't got a decent shot yet of an aircraft. I am still discovering what it wants. I will start a thread on it and hopefully someone can tell me what is wrong with the images. There is plenty, I just don't know where to start.!!

            Cheers
            Paul

              Hi and welcome!

              nice shot! I would sharpen it more and remove the dustspots.
              However, I doubt you can reach acceptable quality...
              greetings,
              Philip

                Thanks phillip.

                How could I remove the dustspots? I did see a few scratches (10 years of sitting in a box) and tried to smudge them out, Is this the best way for scratches and dustspots?

                I realize it isn't good enough for the site, but If I can use this one for practice, then I'll scan all my other ones, to put them into my screensaver.

                  I think many image programs, like Photoshop, and Photoshop Elements, have a filter that removes dust spots. Other than that you can do a search on Google.com for any dust spot remover programs.

                  Great to see that it works well. Haven't acutally tried it myself!!

                    I always use the clone tool in photoshop for the bigger dustspots (see screenshot)

                      I just tried this program and it turned my background from blue to grey. Am I doing something wrong?

                        Thanks for the tip Philip, I'll get practicing with the clone tool. What would you use if it were on a part of the plane that couldn't be cloned, like symbols etc ?

                        Crazy: I haven't had this problem yet, All it has done to my skies is made them less noisy, it hasn't changed the colors at all that I can tell. It's been all positive with my images so far.

                        Cheers
