Transcript:Remove Photo Grain in PhotoshopHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today I am going to show you how to remove noise in your digital picture using Adobe Photoshop CS2. There is one filter that makes this really easy to do.

Photoshop Noise Reduction SlidersThere are four sliders (on right) that you need to play with to reduce some of that noise:
- The strength controls the amount of luminance noise reduction.
- The preserve details slider adjusts image details like hair. A high value preserves the most image detail but doesn't reduce the noise as much. A big part of reducing noise is balancing the strength and the preserve details slider.
- The reduce color noise controls remove any random color pixels you may have.
- The sharpen details slider sharpens the image.
