Hi all,

I'm just trying to work out if Adobe Lightroom 3 is as good as a dedicated noise removal software such as Neat Image 6+.

I don't have lightroom but I have heard and read many good things about it, but rarely do I find comparisons made with dedicated noise reduction software. My current work process is RAW -> Jpeg using Silkypix 3 (with sharpening applied but no noise reduction), and then noise reduction taken care of using NI. If lightroom is as good as NI, then I want to consider merging these two tasks into one software process.

I'd appreciate your comments.
