For weaker noise reduction, switch to the Normal model.

Switch Remove Noise Model
  • Normal model is for low-medium noise images.
  • Strong model is best for high noise images.
  • Extreme model is for high noise images with better detail retention and controls.

To fine tune the results, change the model settings by moving the sliders.

  • Strength slider controls the amount of noise removed.
  • Detail slider controls minor sharpening on the entire image, recovering detail after noise is removed.

The sample results show the difference in different models. Original image (left), Normal, Strong, Extreme (right).
