AuthorSubject: banding question   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Aaron Kiley
Posted on Wed May 5, 2004 7:54 PM

Hi, I have a question about banding.

I'm working on a magazine cover image that I shot recently. The art department wants a deeper/richer blue sky so their text will pop. I used Photoshop CS to take out the existing sky, then I added a new layer (set to multiply) and used the gradient tool with the blue I wanted in the foreground and white in the background on the color palate. I then erased the layer where I didn't want it hitting the subject.

The image is a 16 bit extracted from a Nikon D1X RAW file. I read on these forums that banding can show on the monitor, but not be visible on the print. I did notice banding on my LaCie monitor. I adjusted the blue so that the darkest part of the blue was just shy of maxing the inks (cyan got to 100 first) out as seen on the info palate.

I see a little banding on my profiled Epson 1280 print. Also, a cover proof shows a little banding.

I was wondering if there is a way to add a gradient sky that would make banding less likely. It seems the gradient is asking for so many subtle tones, that maybe there is a way to make a gradient less demanding on the process.

Any suggestions? ... Aaron
