How to Avoid and Remove Image Noise with Nik Dfine 2 is a very specific ebook by photography enthusiast Robin Whalley.
The ebook is very useful for those looking to better their images through minimising and eliminating noise in their photos where possible.
Whalley begins by talking us through what noise actually is, so that we can understand how it occurs in camera and what factors will affect it. Whalley explains well the basic facts about noise, and what can be done to avoid it. The more you can eliminate noise in camera, the easier it will be to clean up your images in Nik Dfine software.
Several useful tips are given on optimal camera settings and options to minimise noise in your images.
The second part of the ebook is dedicated to teaching you how to use Nik Dfine. Whalley ensures that the book is accessible to everyone by starting at the very beginning and explaining how the Dfine interface works, before moving on to the more technical aspects of how to reduce noise in your images using the software. Dfine can be used as a plugin with Lightroom and other popular software, so it's really easy to access and use.
The ebook is very easy to follow, and will be especially useful for anyone not familiar with using Nik Dfine, as it explains step by step where all the various tools are and how they are used to better your image.
The book concludes with some worked examples of images, where Whalley takes an image of his own, that for whatever reason has high noise, and shows us step by step what he did to correct it and more importantly, why he used that method.
This eBook will be of great use to those wanting to learn more about reducing noise in their images and how to use Nik Dfine correctly in order to do the job.
How to Avoid and Remove Image Noise with Nik Dfine 2 is available for Kindle on Amazon.co.uk for £2.54.
