AKVIS Noise Buster V.2: noise suppression for digital and scanned images


AKVIS LLC announces the release of AKVIS Noise Buster V.2.0 for Windows and Macintosh. The new version of this noise reduction software allows for processing of large images.


Digital cameras opened the door to easy and entertaining photography. However, consumer digital cameras also have their drawbacks: they often produce the so-called digital noise. It can be seen as grains that compromise the smoothness of a photo. It is especially annoying on the skin as it makes it uneven. This kind of noise is called luminance noise. There can also be chroma (color) noise which is perceived as random red and blue pixels spoiling the color accuracy of the snap-shot.

Digital noise can be produced by a number of factors: heating of the camera sensor, long exposure shooting, small pixel size (therefore digital compact cameras generate much noisier images than digital SLRs), high ISO settings, etc.

AKVIS Noise Buster reduces both luminance and color noise on digital images without spoiling other aspects of the photo. Now your photos look neat and accomplished.

Besides, Noise Buster is extremely easy to use even for beginners. According to the NAPP magazine "Photoshop User", the strength of Noise Buster is the user-friendly interface.
There are no tricky parameters. You can apply automatic processing or, if not quite satisfied, tweak the parameters observing the changes in real time in the preview window.
