Suppresses salt-and-pepper noise - sudden white and black pixels, which remind one of salt and pepper sprinkled over a photo. This is done after demosaicing.

Whereas salt-and-pepper noise is typically just white or black, hot pixels can be of a pure, saturated color, while dead pixels are black. Hot and dead pixels occur for a very different reason than salt-and-pepper noise and should be handled using the Hot/Dead Pixel Filter, which works before demosaicing.

The slider adjusts the threshold which must be exceeded for the suppression to be applied.
