Grainy pics
Whats the best way to reduce the graininess in my pics?..

Comments (11)

If you're trying to reduce graininess in future, try to avoid using high ISO settings (or perhaps avoiding an Auto ISO mode if you are using a compact camera).

You might find this causes camera shake in your pictures- you'll need to brace yourself more steady, or rest the camera on a static thing- post, wall, tripod ideallly!.

If you are trying to reduce grain in pictures you have already, find a "noise reduction" program - there are many, (I like Neat Image myself, but each to there own) That can help a great deal, at the expense of some image detail..

And finally, before some smart alec says it-.

Sell your Nikon and buy a Canon...

Photography and printmaking is your profession according to your profile , and you ask this question?.

Psst, Do you think you might be a bit behind the learning curve or just a late starter?Regardless, try this : http://www.imagenomic.com/nwsa.aspxHopefully it will help assuming you are getting otherwise decent exposures...

I'm not sure what your're getting at, I didn't ask the question..

I guess you can think I' behind the curve or a later starter, but I can't remember the last time I use anything above ISO 100http://www.highsee3.smugmug.com.

Try asking your question in a more suitable forum, such as the Beginners Forum. You should get lots of useful responses. (This is the News Forum.).

Greg,.

Post some shots so we can see. Grain is determined by a bunch of things. Generally keep the ISO down will help but that won't help if you are shooting on a 4MP camera and then blowing up the image a great deal or croping it and then blowing it up also..

Some cameras have sharpness settings that are adjustable. If these are set too high they can make the picute appear gainny..

Also what you do in post processing can also greatly effect the outcome. Let us see the pics and provide some details on camera, settings, and what you did in post processing and I am sure some folks will be happy to help..
