    Need a little help with PS CS4

    Take a look at the sample gradient jpeg I have made below, my problem is all of a sudden I cannot get my gradients to come out with a smooth transition from one color to another. Does everyone else see the choppy lines in the transition colors I am seeing?

    I seemed to have had this problem a while back, but I cannot seem to remember what was done to correct it and it is driving me bat sh!t, does anyone know how to correct this?

    Image is 2560x1600, RGB Color 8 bit , 72 pixels per inch. I have tried increasing pixels per inch and also tried 16 and 32 bit color, both make it worse.

    Running Adobe Photoshop CS4 on a Windows 7 64 bit machine, 6 gigs of ram / Pentium dual core processor 2.60 gigs each. All drivers are up to date.

    Did you tick the dither box in the gradient window? that sometimes works to reduce those lines.

    i think this is a color problem, happens with black and other "non color" colors, like "white" , "gray" , "black"
    try too make one in red and blue, too see if the problem is PS or if it's the color scheme

    Here are two more samples, one in red and another in blue, as you can see the banding is not so pronounced as in the black/grey original I posted. But it is still there and visible.

    I've had this problem before myself, my experience with photoshop and gardients, suggest me make a permanent color, and put on gardient finally with layer style. it works well for me anyway. This may of course be the resolution you are designing in, what do you use, in the setup of an new file?

    Here is another red sample I made using multiple layers, first by putting down a dark base layer then I created the gradient layer.
    No matter what I try I always get the same end result of banding with the black / grey gradient. This seems to be a big problem with Photoshop if you do a Google search and what alot of people suggest is using noise and blur filters to aleviate the problem. It seems the larger the graphic, the worse the problem. You would think Adobe would address the issue?

    ok i did a bit of messing with this and for what i did with it was did your size resolution at 300 pixels (yes quite a big file but it happens ) but i put up the psd if you want to look at it in photoshop and i looked at it at 100% did not see any lines really standing out
