Hi all,

Very newbie question here! I am getting a fair number of rejections, mainly from Adobe Stock, on the basis of noise/grain. Most of the photos rejected on this basis have been accepted elsewhere, so it could be a quirk of Adobe - but my question is, is there some way to check in editing software for noise levels, beyond 'eyeballing'?

I check my shots at 100% but it's hard to cover all areas, I mainly check the focal points for sharpness and the darkest/brightest areas for noise and blown highlights( also with the histogram).

Is there a way to 'highlight' noise like there is for blown highlights, or some way of seeing it like on a graph?

Thanks!

What camera/lens etc are you using?

It varies, my main camera at the moment is Olympus OM-D EM5 mk2, 17mm f1.8 lens; sometimes I use a smartphone (Pixel 2) but usually submit those just to smartphone-specific agencies. I've got some older images too taken on a Canon DSLR.

Sometimes I can see the noise and understand the rejection, other times I can't see it. Maybe I jut need to train my eye better, but if there are 'technical' ways to check such as graphs that would be helpful.
