AI Denoise - need a way to apply to multi-select and let it run...

I love the new AI Denoise feature!!      HOWEVER... when I use this, it really bogs down my laptop's CPU.  Huge.   

WISH:  Need a way to make it EASY for me to multi-select a number of photos and apply AI Denoise so I can let it sit there and churn away.   Today, because this is an ACTION -- and not a setting that's saved when you copy/paste settings or as part of a preset -- it's impossible to EASILY apply it to a large number of photos.   Even if I "mark" the images I want/need to apply this (eg. make them red) .. I still have to visit each one individually, go to Develop mode, click the button, etc. etc.

more than one reasonable solution:
1) Add a right-click context menu to a multi-selection:  "AI Denoise (group)".  I'm fine with just picking the same settings for all of them!
2) Make the denoise command have a "Denoise at Idle" setting... where it makes the background AI Denoise actions pause until the PC goes idle. Eg. .. just make these super low priority so they aren't taking CPU while I'm trying to interactively edit photos.  It kills the interactive performance of LR.

thanks!

Denoise runs entirely in your GPU. It does not touch the CPU. You need to have a fairly recent and capable GPU, or Denoise will be unbearably slow. With a good GPU, it should normally execute in 10-30 seconds depending on MP size.

 

No one is stopping you from applying Denoise to all your photos - but that's not what it's intended for. It's also a huge waste of your computer resources. Denoise is for the extreme cases.

 

For "normal" ISO shots (anything below, say, ISO 4000-5000), there is no real purpose in Denoise. Standard noise reduction is more than good enough to deal with it. Eliminating noise altogether can not be a goal. It will quickly give the image a "plasticky" and unnatural look in most situations.

 

When running Denoise, do not delete the originals! It's an irreversible process, you can't go back to the original mosaic state. In other words, you'll end up with a double set of files. That can be impractical to manage.

It already exists (in both the Library and Develop modules). Right-click and use the "Enhance" option....

You can easily apply Denoise to as many images as you want. 

In Grid View:

1. Select the images of your choosing.

2. Right-click one of the images and choose "Enhance."

or...

3. From the menu bar, choose Photo > Enhance

 

In the Develop view:

1. Select Images 

2. Click "Denoise" in the Detail Panel

 

It will tell you how long it will take so you can plan accordingly. 

Besides my job here at Adobe, I'm a professional theater photographer and routinely apply Denoise to hundreds of images at once. I love it! It has allowed me to use ISO settings I would never have used before.
