There are two plugins that really help when high ISO has been used: NeatImage and NoiseNinja. I personally bought and use NeatImage professional to get rid of image noise. It does a fantastic job but it cannot fix a bad shot! Shooting RAW is also helpful as you can change the exposure a few steps without destroying the image.

It just seems as though sometimes the simplest answer is often overlooked. I don't know how experienced you are with photo editing, but I just did a couple of very, very basic things to alter the picture you used as an example. It wasn't a big process using Photoshop either. (Not sure why my entire answer nor the edited photo didn't appear here, but my ...

I do agree with previous posters about the poor quality of that image, but you can fix things to some extent with software like Nik or Topaz Labs. A white sky can become (almost) beautifully blue with them and you can improve noise and other problems. Proper photography software like Lightroom or Capture One would do too, but it wouldn't be as easy. ...

This is very easily done in Post Processing, I'll do it using Photoshop. I did it with 3 adjustment layers which I'll explain. First I did a Color Fill with Blend Mode set to fill using a bronze color. I then adjusted the Blend-If Lightness, Underlying Layer to 0/231, 50/255 Then I did a Contrast Curve on the Lightness pulling the midtones down and ...

I work exclusively in black and white. I have used Photoshop, but currently use Photoline. It doesn't really matter which you use, but I've found the channel mixer approach to be difficult to control, and the desaturate method to have no control at all. Both Photoshop and Photoline have a Black and White adjustment layer where you can adjust the values of 8 ...

The most common technique for this is stacking and using masks and layers. I've done this with panoramas in PTGui, using their masking feature to erase ghosts and clones, but I don't think there's any free way of automating this task, because you need to identify the people you want to erase, and you also need to shoot enough "clean plate" to cover all the ...

The photos can be improved, but you would have to pay a retoucher and even then with such a high iso the photos are going to look poor. Maybe pick out a few worth paying a retoucher from the actual day and do a reshoot with someone that knows what they are doing. I spent maybe four minutes in lightroom working on this. Adjusting contrast, black levels, white ...

Certainly in terms of the example you've provided, I would suggest looking at how you can recrop images to minimise the impact. In the example image, recrop the photo to a landscape, with the heads near the top, so that you can eliminate the sky. Unfortunately, there's not much that you can do about the overall lack of composition; at the end of the day, a ...

Information that is not there is not there, there is no magic against that fact. What you can do is de-noise them in professional software (for example Lightroom). They will certainly look better (the obvious color noise would be gone), but they will never get get crisp and sharp like an ISO 100 shot. As others mentioned, there are other problems with the ...

Take photos with a camera that can produce .mpo files and use the Cardboard MPO Viewer.
