Topaz DeNoise Update with Improvements

Today (2/25/16) Topaz will be releasing Topaz DeNoise 6, an updated version of our noise reduction software, complete with new features. As always, Topaz's update is free to anyone who already owns DeNoise. And for those who don’t own it, DeNoise 6 will be on sale ($30 off!) from February 24th – March 20th.  You can use coupon code "NOISEFREE" with to take advantage of the discounted price of $49.99 (regularly $79.99).

Topaz DeNoise is designed to let you shoot anywhere in any light and still get crisp, clear and noise-free images. Specializing in extremely noisy high ISO images, DeNoise removes distracting image noise while preserving image detail, giving you the image you wanted without the noise you don’t. Major features introduced in Topaz DeNoise 6 include:

• Standalone Application - DeNoise 6 now works as a standalone product and doesn’t require a host editor to work. Although it can still be used as a plugin through Photoshop, Lightroom, and other supported host programs.
• Camera Specific Presets - DeNoise 6 introduces dozens of presets based on various camera profiles, with multiple ISO presets for each camera.
• Batch Processing (in standalone mode only) - DeNoise 6 introduces batch processing, allowing you to process a whole folder of images at once. That means no more need for Photoshop actions! Note that batch processing is only available in the standalone version, not the plugin version.
• Support for High DPI (4k) monitors in Windows 7/8/10

I find that DeNoise has a very useful place in my workflow, especially now since I have been using auto ISO, which means once I have set the light meter to give me the picture I want and if the light changes, the ISO compensates.  I also can compensate by using the Exposure Compensation button.
