– A terrific plugin for Adobe Photoshop, allowing you to get rid of any type of noise in your photos. In just a few clicks of the mouse, the program will save the photo from noise in automatic mode, in addition, you can independently adjust the settings for a more optimal result. One of the most common problems that digital camera owners have to deal with is noise. The appearance of noise is influenced by a variety of factors – the presence of light during shooting, exposure time, and how the image is processed by a specific camera.
The optional Dfine 2 module for Photoshop helps get rid of any type of noise. The secret of the filter is that it helps determine the source of artifacts and, based on this information, offers solutions to the problem. Each camera has its own peculiarities of photo processing, so the noise in images obtained using different cameras will be different. That is why Dfine has a system of plug-in profiles for each type of camera. These profiles help to more correctly process images obtained with the help of a particular camera, since they take into account the characteristics of each model. However, even if you do not use camera profiles, Dfine shows very good results and copes with the removal of noise in the image.
