does anybody else use Neat Image?

Here's the link
Neat Image - best noise reduction for digital cameras and scanners

It's a free download with limited function -- perfectly good if you don't want to do batch processing or save outside of Jpg <= that's it's limitation.

The first time I downloaded the program, I was fairly stupefied by it's ability to remove noise.

That said, it ain't perfect, what is? It can overly "smooth" some photos. But for noisy stuff of the right subject it can do some really nice clean up.

Yes, I've been using Neat image for the last 3 years, I love the results.
They just introduced a universal mac version earlier this year also.
They have a profil for the K10D, but I haven't had time to try it yet.

Neat Image and Noise Ninja are the 2 most recommended noise reduction programs. I use Noise Ninja, but could just as easily have chosen Neat Image.

I have Neat Image. I am about to buy the pay version because the freebee strips the EXIF data. I am more than happy with the results of Neat Image though...
