  • That was pretty cool. As someone who doesn’t use PS a whole lot, mostly just because it baffles me a bit, that looks like something even I could do. I’ll be givin it a crack next edit. I shoot quite a bit of Astro and something like this for controlling the noise looks ideal.
    I found the tutorial both informative and easy to follow and understand, so thanks for taking the time and effort to put it out there for us, great job.


    • Hey Danny,

      So glad you enjoyed the video! Hope this will help. It can be a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, I think it’s one of the best ways to remove noise and preserve detail out there. Really appreciate your kind words!
