If you've heard about Adobe's new Denoise (available in Lightroom Classic, Lightroom CC and Adobe Camera Raw), but weren't sure if it was better than Topaz DeNoise AI, this video is for you.

I put both through their paces with a very noisy image (ISO 8000!) to show you the difference in resulting image quality, side by side. And what a difference there is! While both methods of dealing with noise in your image have their own pros and cons, there's definitely a very clear winner when it comes to the end result.

Watch to find out which one comes out on top!
