Canon G-ISOR (for Canon G1/G2/G3 and Powershot Pro90IS)

There are several ways to reduce high iso noise from ISO 100, ISO 200 and ISO 400 Canon G1, G2 and PRO90 IS images. The trick is to reduce as much noise as possible while keeping most of detail and sharpness intact. These Photoshop actions work exclusively with Canon Powershot G1/G2/G3 & PRO90IS jpeg or raw files. They were developed to minimize or in some cases completely erase noise from normal/high images, while maintaining most detail and sharpness intact. In addition, they run faster than any other noise reduction currently available. (Compatible with Photoshop's batch mode).

All G-ISOR actions are compatible with Photoshop 5, 5.5, 6, 7 or higher (PC and MAC). Not compatible with PhotoshopLE and Elements.

*I was notified that many S30 and S40 are getting great results with the G-ISOR action as well. I have not tested the action on these cameras though.

All images were taken from the same location with a tripod and self-timer. No manipulation was made to the images prior to performing the actions. These samples are crops from the 100% image. Pictures were taken with a Canon G2 and tested with Canon G1 and PRO90IS for compatibility.Here is a thumbnail of the image used:

 

G-ISOR 400

ISO 400 images portrait a substantial amount of noise. For that reason, some photographers shy away from using it. When running the new G-ISOR 400 action, you can rescue those ISO 400 shots, and produce professional quality images.

G-ISOR 200

ISO 200 images show a considerable amount of noise in low light conditions. When running the new G-ISOR 200 action, you can make those ISO200 shots useable and produce professional quality images at this iso sensitivity.

G-ISOR 100

ISO 100 already provide relatively clean images, with minimal amounts of noise when shot in normal light conditions. However, when shooting in low light there is a possibility that ISO 100 images could have a noticeable amount of noise in the shadows. This smart action will ONLY reduce noise when necessary. Therefore, you can safely run G-ISOR 100 with all your ISO 100 images, and not have to worry about loosing precious detail. It also works in Photoshop batch mode, which is a great timesaver for professionals who want to clean up a large quantity of pictures all at once.
