  15. Hi Jon,

    thanks for the noise advice, i had  been reading up on noise problems,  that day.

    when I blur the background copy and change blend mode to color, the noise comes back. what am I doing wrong?

     

    Thanks Jon,

      Hi Fay,

      The gaussian blur/color mode fix only effects colour noise. For luminous noise try the noise reduction filter in PS or a specific noise reduction program.

      Here's a comparison to show you how the fix effects the image with the colour noise removed from the right half only.

      Hope this helps.

      Jon
