Well demonstrated. My technique is a little different but accomplishes the same thing.

I find earplugs work best... all the noise is gone then

I just tried that, Tim. After applying the noise reduction, twice, on the inverted selection, I'm still seeing the selection with the moving border (and a moving border around the perimeter of the frame as well); how do I finalize that action so I can do something else?

Good post with an easy method to learn that can make huge improvements to pictures. I do it much the same but with a slight change is all. There are more than one way to skin the cat in PS that is for sure.

I'm sorry Ernie, it's always the little details that I miss. Press ctrl-d and the selection should disappear.

Got it! Thanks, Tim. Now, however, I'm quite befuddled by something: After doing that, I invoked Topaz DeNoise 5, and its action isn't affecting the original subject area, only that surrounding area to which I'd applied the CS6 noise reduction. I'm cunfoozed.

You didn't say you wanted to still use the selection Okay after running your background NR hit shift-ctrl-I to invert again. Now your subject is selected. Now when you run Topaz it will affect only the subject. Then when you are done hit ctrl-D to unselect. Let me know if that works for you

Hah! I didn't want to still use the selection... I'm not accomplished with much of what selections can be used for. So far, I've just used them primarily for content-aware fill. So I'm still at the stage of finding out the basics. I did what you just said, and indeed it worked that way. Before, I was thinking DeNoise would work on the whole image; I didn't know it was smart enough to detect a selection and operate only on that. Thanks!

Next, I'm going to look at your tutorial on layers and masks; it's time for me to explore that, for sure. I really appreciate your taking the time to offer these for us learners!

I'm glad that worked Ernie. Just as an FYI, anytime you have something selected whatever you choose to do only works on that selection, the same applies to plugins

Chad, be careful when you press the earplugs in - with nothing to stop them, they might meet in the middle...

You shouldnt need to use a 3rd party program for noise. PS can do it all very well. The other thing I may add to the process is for the areas that you cant get separated with the quick select tool because they are to small or the tool wants to select more than you want it to is to just leave it alone and do the process as usual then flatten the layer and go back in those areas you couldnt get and use the blur tool on them.

Good info Tim, I don't have PS so I use a plug-in called Neat Image, works pretty good.

Nice tip No Angle. I would like to know your process using PS that removes noise on the subject. Care to share it with us?
