Local Stats Denoising Filter

Recommended Posts

This is a noise reduction filter for e.g. improving photos taken at high ISO values. It works by averaging similar texture patches to reduce noise and at the same time preserve edges and details.

The plugin contains two filters available from the Effects | Noise menu. The Local Stats Denoising which is probably the most powerful but also a bit harder to setup and the Adaptive Noise Reduction which is an older version but easier to use.


Download version 2.0.0 (2019-08-30)


Unzip the file in the Paint.NET\Effects folder or Documents\paint.net App Files\Effects if PDN was installed from the Windows Store.

I would love to test out this filter, but it won't run on my version of PDN (4.0.13). I guess I'll have to setup a Win10 VM and update PDN to try this plugin out.

@dipstick, Running in a VM is not an excuse to be so far behind on updates. Please don't hijack threads to mention that you're not installing updates. It's an unnecessary distraction.
