Gradient Banding Quick Fix Tutorial (Updated) by ScatteredAshe Gradient Banding Quick Fix Tutorial (Updated) by ScatteredAshe
*EDIT* - Wow, my first DD! Thanks to =itznikki530 for inspiring me to create this tut & thanks to ^CelticStrm-Stock for featuring it! Also, thanks in advance for your +fav as I most likely won't have time to thank all of you individually! :dalove:

*View at full size, otherwise you won't see the banding & details* 

Just a little something for anyone who gets frustrated with gradient banding in Photoshop. I'm sure there are other ways to fix banding, this is just the way I deal with it. It's not a cure-all, but in most cases it will work. Hope you find it helpful! =)

Using high-end screen also solves the problem.
Great tutorial :)

Thank you! I haven't heard of high-end screen, would you mind explaining it to me?
slowboyfast Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2014
Sure thing, if something is high-end it means that it has excellent quality. It's also very expensive.
You know, like this:
Canon SLR camera = high-end
Sony Digital Compact = low-end
iPhone 5s / Galaxy S4 = high-end
HTC Wildfire = low-end

If it comes to monitors (or screens), high-end models can display more colors than their cheaper counterparts (they have better contrast, gamma, sharpness, matrix type etc.). For example, I've never seen any kind of banding on NEC, EIZO or Dell monitors while I've seen plenty on LG and Samsung displays (Apple Retina displays are also guilty of displaying bands, even tho they're considered high-end).

Hope everything is clear now :)
