Summary: D Fine is much better than Photoshop's or Lightroom's noise reduction utility's. It's easy to use and yields fast and visible improvements to many shots. Most agree that some sort of aftermarket noise reduction is necessary in digital photography to get best results. D Fine is certainly one of the industry standards.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Navigate, Easy to use
Summary: Dfine 2.0 does a great job dealing with high ISO luminance and color noise. It is easy to use and provides a lot of flexibility in how you process the image. Everything from a one or two click process to as much work as you'd like to put into the image. I downloaded several trial versions of software and chose Dfine 2.0 for its ease of use and quality of result.
Summary: It is a great addition to Apple's Aperture, as well as PS. In conjunction with Nik Sharpener, in Aperture, I rarely have to take anything on into Photoshop. It is a really great noise removing tool.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy To Navigate
Summary: I primarily use this software for those high ISO photos and underexposed photos that require lots of level adjustments. This software will save those photos. I like the fact that this software has automatic as well as manual adjustment features and will also let you reduce noise in specific colors and specific areas of a photograph. It also creates the proper layering for you in photoshop after making adjustments.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Navigate, Versatile
Summary: I can now use higher ISO settings knowing Dfine will eliminate noise as advertised. Leaving the flash at home when I take indoor basketball photos is a real plus. I particularly like the ability to target areas with U-Point technology rather than having to affect the entire image. I have already recommended this product to three other people.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Navigate
Summary: Dfine 2.0 is a joy to use! It does what it promises. It reduces noise. Its automatic setting does a wonderful job, or if you feel the need for more precise control, the program allows you to make adjustments both thoughtfully and carefully. This is a very difficult area of digital photography to find good software. I conducted quite a search. It has ended, thankfully, with Dfine 2.0.
Pros: Does well automatically, Easy To Install, Easy To Navigate, Powerful, Versatile, Works Well With Other Software
