About Noiseware, Portraiture & RealGrain
Noiseware is a highly-acclaimed award-winning software tool that is setting the standard for digital image noise reduction. It leads the field for speed, quality and ease-of-use in restoring image fidelity by eliminating digital noise and unwanted artifacts introduced by high ISO photography and less than optimal environmental conditions.  Portraiture eliminates the tedious manual labor of selective masking and pixel-by-pixel treatments to help you achieve excellence in portrait retouching. It intelligently smoothens and removes imperfections while preserving skin texture and other important portrait details such as hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, etc.  Finally, RealGrain features versatile methods for simulating the grain patterns, the color and the tonal response of different films and different scan resolutions to convey a truly film-like image effect.  All Imagenomic Plug-ins work with Adobe Photoshop CS2/CS3 and Elements for both Mac and Windows-based operating systems.
