It won't get rid of it, but we can downplay it a little bit, and I want to show you how it works. So, we'll work with this shot right here. And in the Metadata, as you'll see, it was shot at ISO 1600. So, you can guess that there will probably be some Noise, especially in the shadow areas of this image.

So, let's take a look at it. I'm going to hit the V key here, hit the V key again, and already we can see some Noise in here, but I'm going to hit the Z key, so we can zoom on in. And we have especially Chromatic Noise here, where we have some color artifacts in there. So, what we can do is go to our Adjustments pop-up window, and go to Noise Reduction, and we basically have two settings.
