Automatic noise reduction amount based on iso in metadata


Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Automatic noise reduction amount based on iso in metadata

Pretty self explanatory, it would take a photo's iso and based on the user preset (each user could calibrate to their camera) automatically set the grain noise reduction value

hmmm....

not a bad idea at all.....if we can get the metadata to communicate in that way with the editor.

Perhaps something like

darktable's denoise – profiled (see 3.4.4.3) module?

It looks quite complex, using community-made profiles, but, as far as I have tried, still often needs manual intervention. So it needs a lot of developers' and users' work for decent results.

I was thinking the same thing, but with a wrinkle..

which would be an idea I've had about making LZ more batch-process friendly.  So, this idea and maybe some others would be mainly implemented on the browser module side of things.  Just something that has been percolating around in my head....like lots of other random stuff, like my idea for a great Turkish-Ottoman restaurant for my neighborhood.
