PP introduces excessive noise?
6 months ago

For many years I have shot jpg and occasionally RAW for critical shots. However in a few videos on You Tube and particularly Serge  Ramelli  he appears to take the shadows up to + 100 and highlights down by 100 and does what  I would call heavy PP.

Now I guess it's what you as an individual is needing to achieve and most of his tutorials are about make an image look like your eyes see it and therefore he often try's to produce a HDR effect.

My main question is how much damage does this do to the image in terms of noise etc?

I personally try and get exposure right in camera but this isn't always possible due to limited dynamic range etc

any tips on how to PP whilst keeping quality high much appreciated

Ian
