Neat Image user guide / Device noise profiles
Usually an imaging device can work in several different modes. Therefore, there should be several device noise profiles, corresponding to each mode to enable accurate processing of arbitrary images produced by this device. If the set of profiles covers all modes of the device then any image from this device can be processed by using one of the profiles from the set.
In this subsection, you will learn how to prepare a reusable set of profiles for a range of modes of an imaging device.
As an owner of a certain imaging device you are in perfect position to prepare a profile set because you have direct access to the device hardware. Moreover, using your own set of profiles will make noise reduction more accurate because such profiles better reflect the specifics of the camera or scanner as well as the workflow you use.
To help you, we provide guidelines about structuring and documenting sets of profiles so that you could prepare a set of profiles for your camera, scanner, etc., in such a way as to make consequent use of this set easy for you and other people if you decide to share your results. Please do share because in this way you will help people with the same camera or scanner model. You can submit a set of profiles to Neat Image team to publish the set on www.neatimage.com (see Contacts) or just share them with other people directly.
