Now and then I run into a new Mac app that generates a simple response. No, not & # 39; ugh . & # 39; Men & # 39; wow! & # 39; My Mac is graced with a dozen or two image enhancement tools that do what you can do in Photoshop, but with just a few clicks, no learning curve, and no monthly subscription fee. This is the story of such a Mac app.
As much as I love iPhones photos and movies, and even though images often compete with high endpoints and shoot cameras, and sometimes competing with the results from a DSLR, it's a problem. Noise. Make light noise. Visual artifacts and fuzz that all iPhone users know all too well when taking a picture in strange lighting conditions.
There is a reason that Apple's iPhone photo-inhibiting samples are mostly outdoors where there is plenty of light. Enter the Noiseless Pro app for Mac. I got this last week and all i can say is, well, "wow!" This is funny. Do you have a grain picture? Smooth it away with Noiseless Pro. And no, it's not complicated to do either. That's what makes it fun. Take a look.
Everything about removing artifacts, fuzz and grain becomes point and click, and the entire interface is self-explanatory. Release an image. Select a preset illumination from the right sidebar. Move the vertical slider to the left and right of the image to see the results side by side with the original.
Noiseless Pro allows you to zoom in, create custom settings, add settings to favorites, but the whole process of converting a grain, slight slide to something even and sharp to the untouched, is simply to choose a preset, adjust the horizontal slider as needed, see the results side by side with the original. It's so simple.
Noiseless Pro can handle most image files for Mac, including .PSD, RAW, TIFF, PNG and JPG. The Pro version comes with several presets and two for RAW image files. There is also plug-in for Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, and Apple's Aperture app.
The basic version of Noiseless has eight presets, but the Pro version is aimed at those who understand color space, and prefer to enhance images from an app such as Photoshop or Lightroom. What is remarkable about Noiseless, either version, is how quickly a smartphone image, which usually suffers under low light conditions, can be done almost professionally in just a few clicks.
The only thing I have, and it's a smaller one, is to have some slip tools built in. Many Mac imaging programs can sharpen an image, but Noiseless is so good for removing grains and fuzz and objects that have a deletion mode, can eliminate further processing in another app.
The quiet developer has a number of great Mac photo papers, and as always from smart developers, a try before you buy.
