Neat Image plug-in for Photoshop
Plug-ins for image editing software play an important role in every application they integrate into because they generally automate a routine that would otherwise have to be carried out manually.
Neat Image has been developed for Adobe Photoshop suite as an automatic solution for removing the noise in the images.
Smart algorithms to carry out the task
The program boasts noise reduction and sharpening algorithms that can help reduce the grainy aspect of a picture and crisp it up without amplifying the noise.
It comes with a user-friendly application window that features controls for adjusting luminance, chrominance or sharpening levels, useful for reaching a clean image.
All the modifications enabled in the plug-in are automatically reflected in the image, thus allowing you to check the final result before saving it.
In order to make things downright easy, it includes set of profiles that can eliminate noise automatically, without any effort from the user; the settings can be further adjusted in order to obtain better results.
Moreover, there is an algorithm created for determining which of the available profiles would do the best job with the loaded image.
The configuration options available in the component allow you to prepare it for optimum filtering. You can select how the smart profile feature functions as well as define a specific noise profile that matches the input image.
For faster processing there is support for hardware acceleration, which allows using the power of the graphics card instead of the CPU.
Just like most plug-ins for Photoshop, Neat Image brings to the table a complex array of settings and image processing algorithms in order to achieve the best results.
It is not difficult to work with and it easily cuts the amount of time needed to reduce the noise in an image by using the more traditional methods.
