Pushing Photoshop Sliders


I used the Nik Vivenza plugin and then Filter > Noise > Reduce Noise with the noise slider pushed all the way across to the max and the details slider at its minimum. After several passes, the images starts to take on a life of its own.

Click the image for a much larger version.

And here’s a closeup showing what I mean about the effect of using the noise reduction tool several times.

        1. I think this is what you need. Looks like it works as a plugin for various applications.

          On the ‘help’ page it says that the app will look for the ‘most appropriate installed applications’

          And at the foot of the home page it has this for Mac:

          MacĀ® OS X 10.7.5 through 10.10
          Adobe Photoshop CS4 (CS5 for HDR Efex Pro 2) through CC 2014
          Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 through 13 (apart from HDR Efex Pro 2, which is not compatible with Photoshop Elements)
          Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 through 5
          AppleĀ® ApertureĀ® 3.1 or later
