Thanks Doug. I have not personally used Lightroom but I had some of my images processed in it by others and was shocked by what appears to be grain when looking at images even at 100%. I experimented processing RAW images in PSE 11 but had what looked like the same issue (though not nearly as much). Noise reduction didn't make a noticeable difference so I went back to using Canon DPP to edit RAW. I take a minimalist approach - optimizing white balance, removing any color cast and basic highlight/ shadow fine tuning. I probably need some serious tuition because I don't seem to get past the error stage with anything much more than this!
