I have discovered I took many images with 1600 ISO that should have been closer to 100 ISO. How do I go about trying to help them in Elements 2018? Thanks for any help. Seems I have issues trying to make bright images look presentable.

I wasn't trying to edit the photo for you.  I was merely showing you some tools you could use.   Yes, the birds in my first example may be too blue.   But you can make adjustments to your own taste.  If you want the birds less blue, make adjustments with the temperature slider.

I think your best bet is to use the File>Open in Camera Raw feature.  A few adjustments and you can get something like this:

Perhaps an even faster method is to use a Levels adjustment (Ctrl+L😞

Well, the first one appears to blue on the birds for me. The second one looks like more of what I would be after. Is this better than using Topaz DeNoise or another product? Thanks.
