Have you ever had trouble with too much noise in one of your images? Maybe the shooting conditions forced you to shoot at an ISO that pushed the limits of your camera a little too much. One way to limit this problem is to shoot multiple exposures with the same settings, and then, use post-production to combine the images and reduce the noise. In this tutorial, Travel Photographer Jimmy Mclnyre shows you how to do just that.
In the tutorial, Mclntyre shows you how to take multiple exposures/layers and auto-align them in Photoshop. He continues to explain how to create a smart object and then soften the noise using the "mean stack" mode found under the smart objects tab. By doing this, Photoshop will find the mean value of each pixel. Mclntyre continues to explain that because the noise moves in each image, there is a better chance of finding the mean value of each pixel with the least amount of noise. To see the process step by step, check out the video. Give it a try and feel free to let us know how it works for you.
