Neat Image is a digital filter software designed to reduce visible noise in digital photographic images.
Noise is a serious problem that hinders high quality digital image processing. In digital photography, the consumer- and prosumer-level cameras produce images with an easily noticeable noise component. This component is especially strong in images shot at high ISO rates. The noise reduces the visual quality of digital images and resulting printouts. Some image processing operations, like sharpening, make quality of noisy images even worse.
Neat Image detects, analyzes, and reduces image noise. The filtration quality is higher than that of other methods because Neat Image takes into account specific characteristics of particular image acquisition devices, making the filtration more accurate. Using device noise profiles, Neat Image adapts itself to almost any input device – digital camera, scanner, etc. Neat Image incorporates the most advanced noise reduction algorithms in the industry.
The rich control set of the filter allows you to easily achieve the desired level of noise reduction. In addition, Neat Image can make images look sharper without any degradation of image quality (which is usually inevitable with noisy images). The combination of the sharpening and noise filter makes such an effect possible.
