Noise Ninja 2 for Aperture
As promised with the release of the Aperture SDK, PictureCode has shipped a new version of Noise Ninja, now designed as an Aperture 2.1 plug-in. The software is used to smooth out noise in digital photos, generally created by using high ISO settings on a camera. The plug-in can also be used to remove grain from scanned filmstrips or slides.
PictureCode claims as much as a two-stop (two light level) improvement in image quality, without the detail smearing present in some other noise utilities. Noise Ninja 2.0 is free as a shareware download, but watermarks photos until users pay a minimum of $35.
