Noise is common in photos. To some extent it can serve as a creative tool, but most of the time it’s a nuisance. It usually appears when you shoot in bad lighting conditions while using a high ISO. But you can remove it using computer editing. Let’s take a look at how to do that.
In photography, sharpness is everything. Blurry photos generally don’t belong anywhere but the trash. But sometimes you’ll take a photo that’s great except for some blurriness. It’s no wonder, since even things like lens quirks can get in the way of sharpness. And meanwhile, if the blurriness isn’t too bad, then sharpening on your computer can save the picture.
Almost everyone who’s spent more than a little time with a camera shoots to RAW. After all, RAW lets you make bad photos average, average photos excellent, and excellent photos even better. That’s because it offers significantly more image data than, for example, JPG. And thanks to this it gives you room for much better edits. So let’s take a look at how to work with it.
Almost every photo requires at least some adjustment to exposure and dynamic range. With RAW photos in particular, you can get more out of them than you may have expected. This comes in handy if you didn’t watch your exposure settings when shooting or you are shooting a scene with harsh highlights and dark shadows. A common example is a landscape or portrait photo where a part of the photo contains a bright sky and another is covered in shadows.
Photos that have too much noise or need sharpening are common issues that many photographers encounter. Fortunately, they can often be solved with some photo editing. Learn how to reduce noise and increase sharpness in your photos. These two adjustments are closely related so you’ll also be learning how to properly balance the photo’s sharpness and digital noise.
