Hot Pixel Removal

Carefully and effectively cleans out impulse noise of any kind from the dark areas of the image. I had a problem finding a good plug-in which would be able to clean out these huge and ugly hot dots that my "carry-me-everywhere" Nikon S6300 camera produces on very high ISO's. I've found nothing reasonably good, so I decided to write it myself.

Apply image as dark frame to a batch of image files

Applies the currently open image to a batch of images as a dark frame, for the removal of hot-pixels in sequences of images.  Suitable for timelapse or other animations taken in low light with non-RAW images where dark frames typically cannot be applied on opening.

Can act on all images in a directory, on a range of images between two specified (default) or on a single image.  Output files have a specified prefix, a sequentially numeric suffix (eg Frame00001.jpg) from a specified starting number.  The output directory may be specified, or the input directory used.
