I purchased a copy of Noise Ninja long ago and am wondering about what their new product has to offer.

It does a pretty good job of raw conversions with great highlight recovery although you have to be careful with the colour enhancement as it can go overboard and give a pink tinge to recovered skies. The interface is a little awkward at this point and there is no clone tool so it may be necessary to use Photoshop, or some other editor, more than you might using other raw converters. Apparently there are plans to have the software enabled as a Photoshop plugin. All in all it's a very promising piece of software however I haven't dropped Lightroom from my workflow yet.

If you download the trial send an email to support and they'll give you a 2 week activation code so that you can use all the functions.

I had just noticed the change when I upgraded my PC and was re-installing software. Looking forward to your review Ernesto.

Very fair and balanced review. The more I play with Photo Ninja the more I appreciate it's power. Makes me wish I had saved all the dollars I've spent on competing products. I still consider Lightroom my primary raw converter due to it's balance of features vs quality of adjustments however PN could change that if future updates bring features such as a clone tool and easier collaboration with other editing software.
