Lightroom: Auto Noise Reduction Tool

I would like to propose an auto noise reduction tool for Lightroom. Many third-party noise reduction tools offer an automatic noise reduction based on analysis of the noise in the photo. It would be great if LR had such and ability. This would speed up the workflow. Sure, I can achieve the same results or maybe slightly better ones by reducing noise manually. But it takes me much more time than just hitting one button with results that are sufficient for most purposes. Also, the ability to set preferences according to the ISO speed of the photo and camera are not that helpful because first of all, noise doesn't only depend on the ISO setting but also other factors. And second, it takes quite some time to configure these presets for each ISO setting of the camera and each camera.
Of course, as with all automatic tools they should only be applied if the users wishes.

Hi Timo,

Good idea, but in the mean time, consider CollectionPreseter or BulkDevelop.
