I'm shooting lots of low light sports at ISO 6400. I shoot raw and adjust noise in PSE9. Seems people say Noise Ninja (and similar programs) do a better job. As I use PSE9, and NN works as a plug-in, it seems to be a good choice.

My main question is the pro or home bundle option. 16 bit vs. 8 bit. I normally work with the raw file and then convert to JPEG to upload. Does NN (as a PSE plug-in) work in the raw editor (need 16 bit version) or the JPEG (8bit). I guess I could also convert the raw to a tiff to use the 16 bit, but that would probably be too much extra workflow. I'm also considering the pro version for batch processing (read the home doesn't batch). I usually process about 50 - 150 pics a day.

Anyone have some advice on which version (or even a different noise program)?
