    I don’t see the noise :S zooming in at 100% and then scalingt the screen to does not give a visual, especially when you also use videocompression allogrithims.
    May be an idea to zoom in to 300% when showing before/after scenario.

    Your tutorials are awesome! You wouldn’t believe the process I used to use to try to remove noise.

    Will these tips always be archived on the site?

    Absolutely helpful. I am beginner at wedding photos and all my pictures taken had tremendous amount of noise. Had no way of fixing this until I look at you tips. BIG thank you. What would have caused this to happen?

    You just taught me how to never fear noise again in my photos, and how to finally control it in my landscapes for a huge step up in quality. I am forever grateful!!! Thank you, thank you thank you!

    I completely love you! I had to shoot hockey pics at a high ISO and couldn’t use a flash. When I lightened the pics, they were so grainy. I was devastated. I know nothing about photoshop (mainly use Bridge), but I stumbled upon this video in an effort to save my pics, and YOU DID IT! There are no words to say how much I appreciate this!

    Thank you so much!! I was in tears when I saw how awfully grainy the wedding photos had turned out and was devastated with them, and dissapointed in myself. I think i can recover most of them now – thanks to your tutorial!! Many thanks!
