Have you ever taken a picture when lighting conditions are less than perfect only to find that your image turned out grainy, even if you used a high resolution? In photography, we call this “noise.” The reason why noise is a big issue in photography is it not only produces a messy looking photo, but if you intend to sell your images, noise will be a major detractor to buyers. Though, for family portraits and casual shots, it may not matter much, and may even go unnoticed.
In this article, I will discuss a couple of tricks to remove noise from your images in post-processing. These techniques are applicable for JPEG images as well; however, I strongly recommend that you always shoot in RAW to allow yourself the convenience of suppressing noise and making other changes without losing image data.
