Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

I cant offer any advice to you or help for others trying to "work things" out for you but just thought i would let you know you are not on your own

I put this down to low light for my camera but i have had it happen since on other peoples photo's when using blendmodes/filters but that sporadic it hasnt fell into a pattern
so will be interested in any outcome and will let you know if and when i have it happen again

this is the best "evidence" i could come up with

Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

I think PS 7 has a Multiply-bug. Try the 7.0.1 update.

Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

palms, I may be wrong, but I seem to remember that you are using PS 7 on a Vista machine.
If that is so, then we have found ourselves a pattern.

Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

Sorry for the delayed reply - I've been out all day.

CJ - Per your suggestion, I applied multiply mode to a copy of pixelzombie's photo, over the original. And yes, the problem does appear, but only at various transparencies. There are no lines at 100%, but when I reduce the transparency they appear at 74%, disappear at 48%, reappear at 24% and then disappear again at 0%. I tried another photo and the same thing happened.

And, so far, multiply mode is the only blend mode I've noticed a problem with. I've played around with all of them and haven't noticed it with any others.

I appreciate the other comments too, and wonder if it is the Photoshop 7 /Vista combination? Unfortunately, I'm stuck with both for now. I'm out of work, broke, and can't afford any kind of upgrade at the moment. If upgrading's the only way to fix it, I'm afraid I'll have to wait....

The "upgrade" to 7.0.1 is free.

Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

I have seen this before, when I had PS7 on my lap top with limited memory, and a small hardrive. Adding memory fixed the problem. Are you on a PC or a Mac? How much memory do you have, and do you have room for a scratch disk?

Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

Thanks again for all the responses.
I didn't know the upgrade is free! I'm hoping I can get it then, because my PS7 disc was given to me by a long lost co-worker when she upgraded to CS2.

I have a desktop PC with 500 GB memory, 2048 MB RAM and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. I've got 226 GB on my C: drive, with only 66 GB of that used, and 120 GB free.

I don't if that means I have room for a scratch disk and am not sure what that is. I'll read up on them in the PS help guide.

Again, thanks to everyone very, very much for all your kind replies!!! I appreciate the effort.

Re: Problem with Multiply Blend Mode

I don't think you need the disc to update.

Here's the direct link from Adobe, to the 7.0.1 update:
