Suddenly, I am seeing blue noise when opening a raw file for processing and using my usual settings and adjusting with the sliders. Even old raw files that were already processed (and looked satisfactory then) are showing blue noise, sometimes completely blowing out shadows. I do not know why this is happening. When I slide shadows and or blacks far to the right, the noise reduces or disappears.
Are you in Develop? Do you have Shadow clipping turned on? Click on the Shadow triangle on the left side of the Histogram to turn on/off shadow clipping. Same deal with hilights...
You are exactly right. It took nearly three hours with the Adobe tech (in
India I presume) before he came to that conclusion.
Thanks very much for the response,
