Default neatimage alternatives?

Are there any alternatives to neatimage that is just as good but
cheaper/free?
Or, does the latest photoshop have this feature (I plan to buy it some day)?

Photoshop CS2 (shipping in May) has a new feature to reduce noise (or grain)
A current alternative to NeatImage is Noise Ninja.

Isn't Neat Image free ? It's called demo version, but it is stated on their
site that you can use it for free as long as you want for non-commercial
purposes "The Demo edition of Neat Image is distributed as freeware for
non-commercial use".
The only thing you miss is the batch processing.

When I bought NI a couple of years ago there were four or five
versions, I *think* the free one only worked on jpegs, not on tiffs, so
it's not much use for many of us. IIRC there was a cheap version for 8
bit tiffs, a more expensive version for 16 bit/channel files, and
another more expensive version that was a Photoshop plug-in (instead of
standalone). Something like that ...

I can't compare the two, but have a look at Imagenomic's Noiseware

As far as I can see on their site, the difference is more on handling
16bits, provinding or not the plusing for photoshop, and batch
possibilities. They say you can mork directly on TIFF images as well on
JPEG, that should be available in the free version.
