Now, thats not what the OP was asking about even.... ha ha.

A great (and little known) solution for banding thats not too harsh, or near a distinct edge is the brush strokes/spatter filter set with r=3-25 and smoothness = 1. See attachment.

Hope it helps.

Excellent tip another tool goes into the minds toolbox....

Thanks Der_W and everybody else.
As far as it isn't reproduced in print...
that's my only concern.

a lot of my work face this problem and I put it all in print quite often, working in 16bit, using lens blur or grain or combined all together will allow you to use it in print. for example using layer adjusment mask with curves - gradient is in mask, you add grain into mask...

see it on image bellow - of course everything has it`s own limit - this technique doesn`t avoid banding, it just solves it when you already have it, using lens blur does not really work on banding which already IS in the image, it works when apllying on a smooth surface - you gotta click on image to see it full size
