Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing noise, part of Up and Running with Lightroom 3.
If you shoot a photo with your camera set to a high ISO, you may see some…digital noise in the photo, particularly in the dark areas.…Fortunately, Lightroom 3 has improved noise-reduction capabilities that do a…good job of reducing noise while preserving detail and color saturation.…The challenge is of noise reduction.…To see noise accurately, it's best to zoom in to one-to-one view.…You can do that from the Navigation panel, as I've shown you in other movies, or…you can use the Warning Symbol over here in the Detail panel.…
It's this triangle here.…When I have the Detail panel open, which is where the Noise Reduction…sliders are, this warning appears if I am viewing the photo at something…other than one-to-one view.…Then to get to one-to-one view, I can just click this icon.…If you didn't see that icon, it means that either you were already at…one-to-one view, or you might need to click this arrow over here to hide the…preview in the Detail panel.…There are two kinds of digital noise, both addressed by these Noise Reduction sliders:…
