Perfect noise reduction

Digital noise can spoil an otherwise fantastic photo, especially if you’re shooting at higher ISO levels.

Nik Dfine uses advanced technology to remove the noise created by your camera’s sensor.

Nik Dfine profiles individual images and then applies advanced noise-reduction algorithms to automatically denoise your photos with a single click.

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.

Precise adjustments, right where you need them

Some images contain noise only in certain regions, and applying noise reduction across the entire photo might not be precise enough. To overcome this, Nik Dfine allows you to focus your noise reduction by using Nik Collection’s innovative U Point™ technology.

These targeted local adjustments allow you to apply Nik Dfine’s intelligent noise reduction algorithms only in areas where they are needed.

For more precise work, Control Points make it possible to apply two types of noise reduction — contrast and color — in different parts of the image.
