Hi guys, I have a real issue with Photoshop. I often undertake extensive editing in photoshop, using many layers. I have noticed that if i view the image zoomed out beyond 66%, I see notable banding. However, when i zoom in beyond 66%, the banding disappears. You can imagine the difficulties when trying to edit an image when you think you have banding problems, that don't actually exist! At first i thought this was a hardware issue, but after undertaking a bit of research, it seems that problem is caused by PS rendering the various adjustments created by layers in 8 bit format, despite the fact that the main image is in 16 bit. I gather that this is to increase the speed/performance of PS. Obviously, this comes at the cost of image quality (until you zoom in). A better explanation is provided here: Color Banding and Posterization at all Zoom Lev... |Adobe Community and here: 30 Bit Display Layer Combination Accuracy Question |Adobe Community The above posts suggest tinkering with the cache levels etc, but after trying this has made no difference. I was just wondering if anybody else had encountered this problem and if so whether they had discovered a successful work around? Thanks for the help!
