Caveats and recommendations

Increase the “gamma” value for brighter outputs, and the “strength” value for smoother outputs. That is to say, when your photo seems too dark, please increase the “gamma” value; when too noisy, increase the “strength” value; when too bright, reduce the “gamma” value; when too smooth, reduce the “strength” value.
