Pre-Processing > Non-Local Means

Reduces image noise using an advanced filtering algorithm [1]. Each pixel’‘s local window is compared to windows around it. The windows’‘ center pixels are averaged together with weights depending on the variations between the windows.

1. Window Size

Size of neighborhood (in pixels) which is considered about each pixel for the filter (Recommended: 2-6)

2. Strength

Factor which controls the strength of the filter (Recommended: 0.2-0.6)
