Years ago I took some 35mm colour shots of various events I visited. One I stumbled on by accident when I was visiting Boston. Among the goings on was a display of birds of prey. Quite some time later I took the original film to a shop where they digitised the photos on to a CD for me. Unfortunately the process was disappointing. The results were very grainy:
I thought I would see how well the Mac app Super Denoising could clean them up:
I had to use the strongest method but as far as I am concerned the result was spectacular.
Far better than I expected:
The harder the program works the more it will tend to lose some finer detail but for me it has converted an unpleasant photo to one which is worth looking at. Super Denoising can cost up to $12.99 but sometimes drops to 99c for a few days which is the price on the Mac App Store at the time of writing.
