For creative professionals, tracking time spent on projects is a necessary fact of life. In an ideal world, your computer would track the time you spend on projects, and you could then adjust the numbers to account for mistakes, and include additional time spent on noncomputer tasks. If you spend most of your billable time in Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, InCopy, or Flash, or in Microsoft Office, CreativeWorx offers exactly that possibility with their TimeTracker system.
NoiseControl 1 is a plug-in for Photoshop and compatible programs (both Mac and Windows) thats remarkably effective at reducing image noise while keeping edge details and natural grain. It can also sharpen a noisy image without increasing noise, and even add simulated film grain to an image to make it appear more natural.
