In the context of digital printing, noise refers to random, extraneous pixels of colour or brightness in a digital image.

Noise can affect the clarity and quality of the final printed product, often resulting in grainy image.

Careful handling of digital files and employing noise reduction techniques can help minimise this effect.

Noise can also be added to a low resolution images to give the impression of being more detailed.
