Tutorial: AKVIS Noise Buster

Cover Girl


AKVIS Noise Buster can be helpful not only for enhancement of "noisy" images but for improving the quality of snapshots as well. You can apply it to portraits to smooth the skin of a model.

In professional portrait photography they often use special softening filters that smooth small wrinkles and mask minor skin defects.

At first glance the photo seems pretty good. However, if we increase the scale of the image we can see unevenness of the skin that spoils the impression from the snapshot.

Portrait of a girl

AKVIS Noise Buster will help us to smooth the skin and create a "cover-girl" effect.

AKVIS Noise Buster is available as a standalone program or a plug-in. We will use the standalone version.

First we open the image in AKVIS Noise Buster with the button.

Noise Buster will process the image using the Automatic Filtering preset from the list of presets. The result is good, but we can increase the value of Sharpness to minimize blurring of the hair.

Adjust the noise reduction parameters

We are satisfied with the result of filtering in the preview area and apply it to the whole image with the button.

The improved image

Finally, we press the button to save the image.

Pay attention to the girl's skin, now it is smooth and even!

This photo could be published in a fashion magazine.
