Reducing Image Noise

Image Noise is a commonly used term in photography to describe visual distortion. It can appear in your photos as gritty or grainy texture, blotchy colors, speckled pixels of color, and other digital artifacts that weren’t present before you hit the capture button. Here's how to use Denoise DLX from BeFunky's collection of photo enhancing tools.

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!

Step 1: Open your photo into BeFunky’s Photo Editor.

Step 2: Under the Edit menu, click Denoise DLX under the Smoothing section, the fourth effect from the top.

Pro Tip: To see your original photo, press the O key on your keyboard and you can really see the difference in color this effect makes in just one click.

Step 3: To adjust the intensity of the effect, click on the Adjust Menu to change the Amount, Smoothness, and Fine Details.

Step 4: Adjust the Amount. The Amount setting controls the intensity of the effect you’re applying.

Step 5: Adjust Smoothness. Increasing the Smoothness will make the pixels look smoother, blending the noise with the truer pixels to create a more uniform look.

Step 6: Adjust the Fine Details. This slider will enhance the depth and contrast so your subjects stand out instead of blending in with the rest of the photo.

Step 7: Click Apply to save your changes.

Step 8: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
