    As of recently, I noticed that RAW photos that I process and then export into JPG do not look like the processed RAW photo that I am looking at while in LR3.4. I'll process the RAW file to my liking it, and export (convert) into a JPG. I then open the JPG (in LR3.4 or Windows Photo Gallery), and the JPG does not look like the processed RAW image that I have open in LR3.4.

    The biggest difference is the noise reduction levels. I can take all luminance noise completely off by pushing the slider bar all the way to the right. The photo looks totally noise free (and lacking in detail too). After I export to JPG, the noise is there! It's almost as if the act of exporting the RAW into a JPG brought back some of the noise!!!

    I am running LR3.4.1 in my desktop computer, which uses Windows Vista.

    Not sure if anyone has encountered this issue ... hope someone can help!

    Totally weird ... it's not doing it now ...

    Same photo, but now the JPG looks just like the processed RAW viewed (and processed) in LR3.4.

    Weird ....
