How to Reduce Noise in Lightroom

All pictures have some level of noise. Noise is like digital film grain; unnatural speckles in your pictures. Noise is especially visible in:

  • Pictures that use high ISOs, such as ISO 3200
  • Shadows
  • Solid blocks of red, green, or blue (such as a sky)

If noise is bothering you in a picture, you can improve it using Adobe Lightroom, as Chelsea shows you here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPX82LMJMiI
