Random coloured pixels that appear in dark or shadow areas when the light levels are below the camera's CCD sensitivity range. Noise is also often seen from scans made using a scanner that doesn't have a wide enough dynamic range to cope with the shadow and highlight areas in one scan. Some image editing programs have a Noise filter that adds a grain pattern to the image to make it look more like a natural photograph taken using film.
