Removing Excess Noise With Topaz Impression
In today's In The Digital Studio, I give you the settings for an oil glaze preset which will help remove excess noise from your subject photo, yet maintain the integral details of the photo. It's a useful preset for those of us who shoot in low light, often resulting in too much noise in the original photo.
The original, dark, noisy photo...
...turns into this by adding a texture and by using my Topaz Impression Oil Glaze settings on just the bird layer.
