Re: I believe this image is actually much better

Depends on the browser. Firefox and Safari handle profiled images correctly.

  • what may look like bad noise for example under the entry roof eaves I believe is simply filmy mold or lichen,

No, it's color noise unless there is purple/magenta lichen as well.

Proof is that there is no noise in similar shadows of other eaves, while in the top back under eaves there are some leak or waterflow-patterned markings that look like what they are rather than noise.

There is color noise under all of the eaves - it's lighter where the shadow is lighter and darker where it'd darker. It's a scatter pattern of mostly green dots and some magenta dots. Kick the saturation way up and you can see it more clearly for noise and not mold or lichen. (There are also green dots at the tops of the windows where the lace is.)
