- The ability to use Camera Raw…as a filter improves our workflow…and allows us to achieve the results we want…in an easier, more efficient way.…This is especially true with noise reduction.…Here I have an image captured with a very high ISO…and I have lots of noise in the fur of the black cat.…So let's see what we can do about reducing that.…I'm gonna come to the Layers panel,…right-click on Layer 0…and Convert this to a Smart Object.…
Then, to the Filter menu, Camera Raw Filter,…or Command-Shift-A.…Let's go directly to the Detail options,…where it tells me that I need to be at a view of 100%…in order to evaluate this.…I'll hold down my space bar, and move down…to the bottom right of the image,…which is the most troublesome area of the image.…Firstly, I'm gonna add some Sharpening,…which is, in some ways, gonna make the problem worse.…But we do need some Sharpening,…so we're trying to find a happy balance here…between the Sharpening and the Noise Reduction.…
I'm going to put the Sharpening up to about 70…and then use the Masking slider…
