OnOne has a pretty good sale going on their new Perfect suite, as well as standalone apps. Perfect Effects 9 is on sale for 39.99, and the previous version does 85% of what I need to do (mainly just noise reduction and cropping that were lacking), so the addition of noise reduction to this app makes it pretty cool. They're saying this version runs about 30% faster too. PE8 was always a little slow. I'm thinking I might give this a try - PE8 was free but I guess 40 bucks isn't too much to complain about.
