    Nik Dfine V Topaz Denoise

    I've had Nik Dfine 2.0 for quite a while, but recently with all the chat about noise on the forum and several people getting good results with Topaz Denoise I decided to download the free trial of Denoise and run it alongside Define. As far as I can see you can reach the same end result with both plugins, the Denoise if anything has a slight edge in speed due to it have the presets to choose from. This is purely a personal opinion and I'm sure others would differ. Being as I already have the Nik suite I won't be buying the Denoise when the trial expires purely on not seeing the point of the expense.
    Regards Brian I'll wait for you, but should I fall behind wait for me. "I may be old but I saw all the good bands" ;)

    So basically if you have one there is no advantage in having the other

    If you have CS5 or 6 or Lightroom4 you won't need them.

    Was just about to say LR4 does a blinding job.

    I used every plugin for noise until CS5 so I know what you mean. I also had XP running CS5 but was well Peed off when LR4 and CS6 wouldn't run on the PC.

    Problem with upgrading is the cost but Lightroom4 came with a nice price but it cost me a new PC..............but I got CS6 for nothing, on a special from Adobe.
