Dfine for Adobe Photoshop 2.002
Virtually, all digital cameras inherently create unwanted imperfections known as noise. The amount or type of noise in an image typically depends on the quality and type of imaging sensor with which it was created.
Contrast (Luminance) Noise and Color (Chrominance) Noise can be individually present in an image or might be seen in the same image. Fast or high ISO speeds and low light levels can add noise to images, while some images might exhibit high levels of JPEG artifacts.
Dfine 2.0 gives you unprecedented control over exactly how much and where to apply noise reduction. This makes it ultra-easy to eliminate noise in your images while maintaining detail and sharpness, thus improving the quality of every digital photo you take. Dfine 2.0 is designed to prevent the loss of detail other noise reduction tools often introduce.
Selectively applying noise reduction can lead to an image with better detail and clarity. By limiting where noise reduction is applied, details in those areas that do not require noise reduction can be preserved.
In addition to being able to apply noise reduction to the entire image globally, Dfine 2.0 offers you three different methods of applying noise reduction selectively.
Color Ranges: reduces noise within individual color ranges. This method works best when applying selective noise reduction in a batch process.
Control Points: Use U Point technology to automatically isolate objects based on their unique characteristics.
Selective Tool: Lets you apply Dfine 2.0 only where you want using Adobe® Photoshop® or Photoshop Elements Brush Tool, automatically and managing layers and layer masks.
Each of these different methods were designed to enable you to work in the style that suits your workflow best and increase your efficiency dramatically.
