ON1 Short Clip — Ultimate Noise Reduction Control

Tagged with , , ,

Use the Noise Reduction filter in ON1 Effects with blending modes and luminosity masks to target very specific areas of your photo without elaborate masking. Watch me show you how you have ultimate noise reduction control with ON1 Photo 10.

    Hi Scott

    Really nice set of reminders, and yes I really should use the noise reduction in On1 more often than I do. (I generally use it only where Lightroom has been unable to cope with the noise, as a sort of extra treatment).
    Fingers crossed similar, or maybe even better controls will exisit in Photo Raw. If so, I look forward to applying luminance masks, when necessary.

    Best wishes, David Price.

      Most welcome, David. I’m not “in the know” but I have no reason to believe the blending options will go away with Photo RAW.

    now – will there be a way to control the “apply to / range” function? Just a simple mask overlay showing the area which will be affected. Right now it’s somehow like poking in the dark …

      Hi Jean… working in the shadows… poking in the dark… I see what you did there. Ah, wordplay… :-)

      Yes! An overlay view mode that accounts for both a mask and the blending options would be a great addition.

    I’d like to see something designed for less sophisticated persons, like myself. I’d like to have amid adjustment brushes one more brush – noise removing brush. I do not know how difficult it is or how plausible it is , so I keep my fingers cross.

      An idea for you… *any* Effect can be treated as an Adjustment Brush, including Noise Reduction. Give this a try:
      1. Apply a Noise Reduction filter
      2. Choose Mask > Invert Mask. This will *remove* the Noise Reduction from the entire photo.
      3. Grab the masking brush, make sure the mode is Paint In on the Tool Options Bar (upper left), and brush in the NR filter.

      Again, you can do this with any filter in Effects today.

        Thanks for th hint – I’m not good with masks. Following your instructions, I’ll try to make it work. Again, it will be nice not knowing anything about masking and inversion just pick up a noise reduction brush.
