I recently started scanning old photos, you know, those that were made with real film, all analog, no digital pixels.
But you know what? Just like with digital cameras nowadays, when you have low light scenes and you have to crank up the ISO value which results in a noisy photo, it also happened back then.
Every photo editing software today has some kind of denoiser which is supposed to remove that undesirable noise. It does the trick but it also removes the details unfortunately. Maybe there is some AI powered software that can help, I thought. And there is! And it’s amazing.
It’s called Topaz DeNoiser AI: https://topazlabs.com/denoise-ai/
I tried the trial version so far and it’s almost unbelievable how much noise can be removed while adding detail in the process. I don’t know how it works. To me it’s just AI magic!
Take a look for yourself! Move the slider left or right to see the difference.
