Re: Gradation banding remedies?

If you were wondering how to use the spatter-technique close to edges/foreground objects, I would tell you to use a mask, and use a smaller radius the closer you get to the edge.

Re: Gradation banding remedies?

Thank you. The artifacts are really bad though, and it will be a long job to complete, not really justified by the payment for the job. Thinking about the problem, I suppose my question should really have been "has anyone found a better way to get rid of banding on a plain background in a portrait shoot than the spatter method?"

Re: Gradation banding remedies?

Portrait or not, the spatter method works well in areas with smooth transitions (that has some banding in it).
If you have harsh artefacts and banding I would recommend applying a gaussian blur first to smooth it out. This might solve the problem for you (especially if you are working in 16-bit mode).

If it's too damaged, you might want to recreate it using a gradient or a large soft brush.
