Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing noise, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
I am going to talk a few minutes now about Image Noise.…It's a fact of digital photography.…It shows up in our images often when we raise the ISO up high to 400, 800, 1600, 3200, if your camera will go there,…and it looks a lot like what we used to call Film Grain.…It does a pattern that's not natural.…So we are going to take a look at a little bit of image noise here…and then look at Aperture's tool to help reduce it.…I am going to go into Full Screen mode because we want to really zoom in…and take a look at this image at a magnifying level.…
So I am going to hit the F key.…I am going to put my pointer over here.…I am going to hit the Z key so I can zoom in, and this is what image noise looks like.…As I said, if you have ever shot film, you will recognize this,…it's not that much different than a film grain pattern.…I am going to hit the H key.…It will bring up our heads-up display for Adjustments.…Now the Noise Reduction is not one of those standard default bricks, so we will go up to the plus (+) sign…
