Noise Reduction in Photoshop CC

Best Way to Reduce Noise in Photoshop CC. In this video, we’ll perform Advanced Noise Reduction using the best Photoshop noise reduction plugin: Dfine 2, a part of Nik Collection by Google. We will approach getting rid of noise manually by using several noise samples from or image for accurate and personalized noise reduction.


Dfine 2 is not only FREE but also the best plugin to reduce noise in Photoshop CC. Although there is a way to remove noise in one click automatically, we will use the manual method where we pick noise samples from around the image and use it to analyze the different patterns of noise. This plugin is compatible with most later versions of Photoshop. In this video, I’m using Adobe Photoshop CC 2017.

Noise is mostly caused when the ISO is very high or the sensor of the camera is not good enough to handle higher ISOs. This kind of noise has a particular pattern and sometimes the patterns differ from area to area. It is evident that one kind of filter or effect will not remove the noise effectively and therefore the need to analyze several patterns. Though the best way is to get it right in the camera and avoid shooting at higher ISO, high ISO noise reduction is possible in this method.

Fixing noise in photoshop or any other program always has a major drawback. It makes images look smoother and they lose sharpness and details. In this video, we’ll also cover how to get over that issue and reduce noise without compromising with sharpness. To begin with mak sure you download the noise removal plugin “Dfine 2” which automatically installs as a part of “Nik Collection”.
