Eliminating Graininess in a screencap

First time poster here so be gentle and if this has already been addressed, just point me in the right direction.

This is driving me crazy, but I've notice that it happens a lot when I try to color/normalize The Vampire Diaries screen caps. I use HD screencaps, but  when I crop them at 500x width or higher and start my coloring process, even if I get the coloring right, I most likely have to add a surface blur or something of the nature to try to remove the graininess that occurs.
