So if I were to zoom into this image, selecting the Zoom tool and the Plus symbol, and then clicking several times. When I get in real close, you can see that there are tiny specks of color, representing color digital noise, as well as tiny specks of black and white, representing grayscale digital noise, and there are some square artifacts that are a result of compressing the image in the JPEG format.

I am going to use the Reduce Noise Filter to reduce all of those artifacts. I will take this image back to 100% by double-clicking the Zoom tool in the toolbox. Then I am going to go up to the Filter menu at the top of the screen, down to Noise, and I am going to choose Reduce Noise. That opens the Reduce Noise dialog box....
