    Lightroom 6/CC adding noise upon export?

    CallumBaker

      Hi all,

       

      Since updating to LR6/CC I've noticed that exported images look significantly noisier than the Lightroom develop preview, bear with me as it's tricky to explain;

       

      I'm exporting to sRGB JPG, adding no compression by way of limiting file size/reducing image quality and adding no sharpening, yet the exported images look SO much noisier than they should.

      To combat the issue I'm adding 30 Luminance in noise reduction prior to export - this makes the images look far too smooth and obviously noise reduced in Lightroom, yet the exported JPG looks just like the develop preview did prior to adding the noise reduction... weird.

       

      Anyone experiencing this and know a way around it that isn't adding Luminance prior to export?

       

      Thanks!
