Removing Noise Using Topaz DeNoise 4


Removing Noise Using Topaz DeNoise 4 - Maxis Gamez, All Rights Reserved
Read my blog and learn what I do to prevent & remove noise!

Every digital camera creates "noise”, which appears as unwanted dots and smudges of color. An large amount of noise can ruin your images fairly quickly. Luckily for us, Topaz has created an excellent tool to remove noise and also allows you to keep a large amount of details.

In my blog, I talk about how to help prevent noise right out of the camera and finalizing your images in Photoshop using Topaz. Follow this LINK to read all about it!

Feisol Carbon Fiber Tripods Continues To Deliver In Salt Water!

Yet again, I received a phone call from a friend of mine sharing his bad experience with Gitzo tripods and salt water. He made me smile because he asked me "how do you do it?" I said to him while Gitzo are excellent tripods, FEISOL carbon fiber tripods has the advantage when it comes to salt water.

I'm excited because I will be receiving a shipment from FEISOL with their new QUICK/RAPID RELEASE tripods.

I'll let you know in my next newsletter!
