    Like others have written, exporting to 100% JPEG should not show much if any degradation. Exporting in any other format should not make any difference. Depending on your camera, ISO 6400 may or may not be that big of a deal. What were all your setting? Could it possibly be over exposed?

    So if you want to suppress the noise you'll have to filter it. LR has noise filtering under the detail tab. Better noise filtering is available from specialty tools like Topaz Denoise and Neat Image. I like Neat Image.

    I’ve done that. Sadly shooting hi iso, even when exposure is spot on, does compromise some image quality. It can’t be fixed in software but it can be improved on as mentioned already.

    I agree. I used to shoot with a Canon Rebel when I first started taking photos. I would get poor results with an ISO of 6400. Now, I use a Canon 7d and a 5d. ISO 6400 is no big deal and I don't see much noise in the photos, now.

    that usually means the image was too large. resize it below 1024px.


    fred miranda forums have a few threads on NR workflows in lightroom. ill have to find them again.

    The noise filtering did the trick! I guess I was being to conservative with it to start. Images look better. I am happier with them! Thank you everyone for your suggestions!!
