Bring the Noise: AI De-Noise Software

In my latest Smarter Image column for Popular Photography, I look at how AI-assisted de-noising tools can make you a better photographer while you’re shooting.

Bring the noise, boyee! In my latest Smarter Image column for Popular Photography, I look at how AI-assisted de-noising tools can make you a better photographer while you’re shooting.

You may yawn and think, “Gee, Jeff, software can fix stuff. Wow.” But for me the revelation wasn’t that AI can do a better job of dealing with noise than traditional tools. Instead it has freed me as a photographer to push ISO higher in difficult/darker situations and get the shot I want. Noise doesn’t have to be a limiting factor if you know that your tools can deal with it well.

It’s a technological change that can affect artistic intent. Crank that ISO and bring the noise, knowing you can deal with it later.

Here’s the column: Bring on the noise: How to save high ISO files deemed ‘too noisy’.

To ensure you get notified when I publish a new Smarter Image column, subscribe to my Photo-AI newsletter. It’s free, but you have the option of supporting me financially to help me continue as an independent journalist. Currently it exists solely to announce new columns, but in the future I hope to expand it to other areas dealing with computational photography.)
