Introduction to Dfine® 2.0 and the User’s Manual
Chapter 1: Introduction
The result? Dfine 2.0 is a powerful, yet easy-to-use tool that anyone can use to perform high quality noise reduction without needing to understand the complex underlying theory.
Because Dfine 2.0 is a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe
Photoshop Lightroom, Apple Aperture and other compatible applications, you must have Photoshop or a compatible application installed on your computer.
New Feature Highlights
Welcome to Dfine 2.0, the most powerful tool for reducing noise in your digital photographic images.
All digital cameras inherently create unwanted imperfections known as “noise.” The amount of noise in an image typically depends on the quality and type of imaging sensor with which it was created.
High ISO speeds and low light can also add noise.
New Dfine 2.0 gives you unprecedented control over exactly how much and where to apply noise reduction. This makes it ultra-easy to eliminate noise in your images while maintaining detail and sharpness, thus improving the quality of every digital photo you take. Dfine 2.0 is designed to prevent the loss of detail other noise reduction tools often introduce.
Dfine 2.0 introduces a brand new, re-sizable user interface that includes Nik Software’s award-winning U Point® technology for the ultimate in selective control. Busy photographers will appreciate the workflow improvements offered by the new interface, as well as improvements such as automatic camera profiles and batch processing. New interface
