Amazing noise
reduction algorithms

Nik Dfine is a wavelet noise-reduction tool based on sophisticated algorithms. It first transforms a photo into a map of spatial frequencies — a way of describing an image by focusing on how pixels relate to one another.

It then identifies sample areas that are representative of the noise in the image, removing matching noise elements from across the entire photograph.

An efficient way
of working

Easily manage multiple denoising profiles within Nik Dfine. Simply save your preferred denoising settings and then reapply them as required.

A vast array of possibilities.


Precise adjustments,
right where you need them

Sometimes, applying noise reduction across an entire image is not precise enough.

Nik Dfine allows you to focus your noise reduction locally using Nik Collection’s U Point technology.

For example, U Point’s intelligent local adjustment tools make it possible to apply two types of noise reduction — contrast and color — in different parts of the image.
