I was just about to report this issue as well. Sadly it’s not a new issue, though. Had that in earlier versions, reported it and I think it got solved then. Now it’s resurfacing.
I’m using the Photoshop filter version Photo AI 3.0.1 on MacOS 14.1.1.

I just uploaded the requested files. I took several pictures on the same occasion, and the square pattern appeared on every photos, using the denoise function. I have never observed this before (thousends of photos).

This appears to be occuring while using both the Sharpen and Denoise features simultaneously on your image. Could try using either the Sharpen feature or only the Denoise feature to see if this problem still occurs?
