Has anyone other than me noticed that when you save a photo as a jpg or even a tiff file in photoshop that the result ends up having more noise. I found even taking a screen shot in photoshop and pasting it into Microsoft paint produced a better final result even though it was significantly lower in resolution. I've come up with a solution  that involves saving it as a psd file then using fotomatrix to save as a jpg. Has anyone else have a technique that they found work for them?

I don't know then because I alway used to save  in photoshop quality set at 12 and never noticed it maybe somethings wonky with my software.

I will take a look into that. This usually only shows when I've done a lot of cooking of the image boaderline too much, Thank you Wayne for the advice . 

Photo shop(cs5) is the best I found,First i always open raw files into cs5,adjust then convert to jpg with quality 12.Then i tweak back and forth from adobe PS Lightroom to cs5. i try to stay away from Corel paint shop x2 and x4 or i have to convert to bmp or png witch looses photo EXIF. This is the best technique i found for me.

Yes I too start with cs5 and ajust in raw fixing abbreviations and noise, white balance, contrast and sharpness then move on to photoshop for a smart sharp and fine tune curves check color balance and sometime i will play with blending layers I've even used topaz plugins but found its was risky if the image was too cooked. Then i found photomatix does a good job of removing any final noise.
