Macphun is launching an early preview of its newest photo editing app Noiseless for Mac today and giving 20 MacRumors readers the chance to win a copy of the complete Pro version of the software ahead of its launch.

Noiseless is designed to give users an easy way to improve low-light photos by removing the "noise" or graininess in those images. Noise often plagues photos taken with smartphones and other non-DSLR cameras in poor lighting conditions.

The app provides several one-click presets with different strengths that remove the noise from an image in a few seconds. There are also deeper adjustments that give users finer control over the noise removal in the app. The standard version of the app will be priced at $19.99, and the Pro version, with support for RAW photos, a Loupe view, and plug-in functionality, will be priced at $49.99. Those who download the preview version of the app can pre-order the pro version at a $10 discount.

noiselessapp
Removing the noise in an image with Noiseless is done through some targeted blurring, which has the side effect of removing a lot of the finer details in a photo, so the effect may not be appropriate for all photos or appealing to all users. We recommend checking the app out during the trial period before deciding to purchase later on.


All MacRumors readers can download a preview copy of Noiseless with limited functionality (no sharing or exporting) from the Macphun website to check it out ahead of its April 16 release, but we're also giving away 20 copies of the full Pro version of Noiseless.

Just my opinion, but in the video, the originals look better to me. The noise removal looks too extreme and results in an airbrushed/blurry feel.

How about this working with Pixelmator?

I don't think they are open for plug-ins, but frankly we haven't done much research in this field. Do you know any? Plus we have our own "Pixelmator" coming:)

Looking forward to trying it

I have good number of photo's that this could help with (environmentally light challenged where noise rears its ugly head) and look forward to trying it out.

Really surprised at the number of Debbie Downer's taking the time to log a disparaging comment on an application they've never used...C'mon guys this is an additional application for the Mac (plugin for Adobe and Aperture) that some folks have poured their heart and souls into, give'm a chance.

I hope that Apple eventually has In App purchases for the Photos application on the mac that is open to developers. That way instead of having to have a bloated version of Photoshop or a bunch of different apps scattered about, you can instead pick and choose the features and plug-ins you need connected to the App Store. If they did this with Final Cut Pro and Motion as well, they might have some real competition to Adobe's near monopoly over the creative field.
That's a fantastic idea ProVideo...Apple folks are known to roam these forums, hopefully they bring such a thing to reality.
