Why opening a RAW file in PS CC has more chromatic noise than when opened in LR CC or other CR2 viewers?
Saving this RAW file using PS as JPG is worse than the original JPG saved by the camera, with lots of noisy patches. Note: No default Camera Raw 10.0 tweaks had been applied and saved in PS with the highest quality possible
I have read a few threads with slightly around this topic by other people, where mostly the answers were around JPG compression v RAW data etc. But my Q is specific to the workflow where the above situation puts me to deal with the patchy noise during editing which is very counterproductive.
Hope someone can see what is the root cause of this.
