  • Bending problem

    Hi, how you solve the bending problem? Please do not talk about noise and all the post stuff. I mean really, like you approach an image and work without bending?

    I'm retouching a car and I'm repainting the doors and after 5-6 gradients there is bending everywhere. I hate this thing because some times it happens and some times not.

    It looks like you may need to work in 16bit.

          You can still get banding in 16 bit but it is significantly less of a problem than in 8bit.

            But why it happens? I mean i know it happens with complex gradients but why

              The broader the color space the bigger chance that banding may occur so working in 8 bit ProPhoto would be a bad idea.

              Also if you're using Photoshop, make sure you zoom in 100%, or flatten the layers, the non 100% previews may show banding even though there is none.

              I've also found that adding a bit of noise helps to create smoother looking gradients.

              Here's a nice short article about bit depth and color spaces:

                Imagenomic portraiture 2 crashing problem
                by takamoko
                Im still fighting with this plugin for photoshop. Despite i made some correction what imagenomic said to do, my portraiture is always crashing. It works only when i start photoshop and go directly to P2. For second time or after some work in CS4 it will crash. Maybe somebody has some experience. Thank...

                Cursor problem
                by Ed_L
                This is kind of strange, but not really a major problem, just annoying. Every so often, my cursor decides to smoothly move a few inches on my screen, without me moving the mouse. Has anyone else had this happen? Any ideas why it might happen? I suspect it's a software problem instead of a hardware problem,...

                High-Pass problem
                by quadupix
                I masked out the skin and saved it as Alpha channel and applied a lens blur on it. After applying multiple high-pass to my image I get strange colour tone on the skin edges...dark colour seem to bleed on to the skin.

                How do I fix this?

                Thanks kindly...
