For example, this particular photograph contains a sufficient amount of noise, that even after about the biggest application of Reduce Noise you could possibly apply, we're still seeing a bunch of noise inside the midtones as well as inside the shadow detail. Well, there're a couple of things you can do. One is you can take advantage of the Advanced settings associated with a Reduce Noise filter; and two, you can apply one of the old-school noise reduction functions, such as Dust & Scratches.

So let's start things off by double-clicking on Reduce Noise to bring up the Filters dialog box and I'm going to zoom in on my image as well, so I can see it at 200%.
