Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing noise, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…The I phone has a very small lens and a relativly small sensor.…And so you would think that noise would be a big problem.…Anytime you would try to take a picture…in low light noise is going to manifest itself.…But I have to say over the years the images…have gotten better and better with lower and lower noise.…But I do want to show you how to handle…noise reduction and I want to show you two different examples.…One here's an image off of the iPad two…with really a low resolution camera.…The first few iPads had pretty lousy cameras.…
In fact the first few iPhones had not-so-hot, dual cameras.…The camera that faced the person taking…the picture, really wasn't very high resolution.…Same with the iPods.…So, let's think about it in terms…of iPhone photography, using the other camera.…What we're going to do is we're going to come over…to the Develop module, and we're just going to scroll down…to Noise Reduction.…And there's a couple different types of noise.…And for noise, you want to zoom in and look at things closely.…
Next, Bryan explores Lightroom and Photoshop techniques aimed at working around the iPhone camera's limitations and making mobile photos look their best: enhancing dynamic range, correcting lens distortion, reducing noise and enhancing sharpness, and much more. Plus, learn how to create HDR images and panoramas, and even lift still images from video.
