Digital photos shot at high ISO speeds often suffer from noise. And all digital photos have a slight softness due to the nature of imaging sensors. Like all imaging software, Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop have features for fixing these flaws. But using these features isn't always straightforward—and incorrect use of them can make a photo look artificial and overprocessed.

In this course, join Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth exploration of the noise-reduction and sharpening features in Lightroom and Photoshop. The course begins with tips for getting the cleanest possible images when you shoot. Next, Bryan details the process of making overall noise and sharpness improvements in Lightroom. The course concludes with a look at various advanced Photoshop techniques for localized adjustments and more.

(soft music) - [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bryan O'Neil Hughes and welcome to Noise Reduction and Sharpening in Lightroom and Photoshop. In this course, we'll talk about strategies for capturing and making sure that you've stabilized your camera and really get the most before it even comes into software. We'll take it into Lightroom where we'll sort through your images, apply things globally and dig a little bit deeper with some selective edits, especially around noise reduction. Then we'll pass files over to Photoshop and we'll get really into detailed edits around selective sharpening and some special tricks like buying light with camera shake reduction.

We'll even use a really cool trick for taking multiple images and removing noise using Photoshop and Smart Objects. We'll be covering all these features and a lot more so let's get started with Noise Reduction and Sharpening in Lightroom and Photoshop.
