Tedious is something I cannot abide when I'm processing a few hundred game photos (much less 3 weeks ago, when I had 600 frames). I need the most efficient workflow I can get. It's already wasteful to me that I can't simply hit space to move to the next photo and be able to crop right away; I need to click on the crop settings to be able to crop. For my use case, I don't need absolute elimination of noise, but I like to cut down the noise some for the very high ISO settings I use. If I were able to shoot at ISO 1600 I wouldn't even both bother with NR at all. But I don't want artifacts or complete removal of detail. If I didn't have an alternative I'd accept the noise. > On 03/10/2018 04:56 PM, Robert Krawitz wrote: >> On Sat, 10 Mar 2018 16:44:24 +0100, David Vincent-Jones wrote: >>> Your examples interest me since they are shown on a blue subject.
