Pros & Cons:

Results are not bad if done in small stages.
Automatic is a blunt instrument and will definitely ruin your image.

Our Review:

Noiseware Community Edition has a drop-down-box that enables you to make simple choices (automatic noise profiling), but I considered this to be a blunt instrument.

If you want to start using the automated profiles then I would recommend starting with weaker noise. If weaker noise has too little effect then further adjustments can be done manually with the preview box turned on. This is a gentle start and as you get to know these programs you will quickly learn to only do things in very small steps, otherwise the image is very easily spoilt.

All options in the More Controls section are not available on the free version, but very good results are still possible. Just how good, it will depend on your skill and patience as it is unlikely the automatic fixes will give a satisfactory result. Thankfully, there is a good help file.

The application opens JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF (24 and 48 bpp) files and saves results as a JPEG.
