Help! Colour banding graphics problem /posterization?

May 4, 2012 8:43 PM

Tags: #cs4 #color #graphics #card #gradients #banding #posterization

Hi.

 

I've been having a few problems lately with colour banding/gradients/posterization. I first noticed it 3 or 3 days ago in photoshop, and seem to have noticed it's mostly system wide. I ask her because you're all clever and I don't have a clue what to do next! So please help me!

 

Quoted from my thread somewhere else that I've had no luck with and was recomendded to try here...

 

 

Since yesterday whenever I'm using Photoshop and there is blurred edges/gradients etc, basically not solid colours, there is really noticeable sharp colour banding lines around it.


It's happened before and I've accidentally had it on 8-bit instead of 16-bit, but I've checked all that and it's on 16-bit.

I've googled it and the only suggestion was about duplicating the layer and blurring it then adding noise, but that didn't even work.

[EDIT] SINCE THEN I HAVE REALISED IT IS AFFECTING SYSTEM WIDE GRADIENTS AND COLOURS


My system is set to Highest 32-bit too. I changed it to 16-bit to see what happened and it made the banding 10 times worse.

It's supposed to be a smooth gradient. I didn't use the gradient tool, I used the brush tool with solid white and then smudged and blurred it like I always do.

That's a good point, and actually I did start it as an 8-bit originally (my photoshop has been starting as 8-bit, grayscale for a few weeks now and I don't know why) but then after I remembered and changed it to 16-bit, and noticed the banding, I closed that document and started a new one and changed it to 16-bit RGB when the pop-up for a new document came up.

The resolution is always 72pixels/inch, and the size 256x512, colour mode RGB.
In advanced it says colour profile Working RGB: sRGB IEC61966-2.1 which I have no clue what means, and I never usually click advanced so I don't know if that is usually that or different.

When I use the brush tool and blur and smudge it it's fine, with no banding. It's only when I lower the opacity of that layer, or use Hue/Saturation and Lightness to darken it so it's hardly visible that the banding appears.
I've just tried it again with a fresh new document and it's still the same. Even in 32-bit it's exactly the same.

It's done it before, and all I did was close and reopen Photoshop and it was all fine again, but this time it happened last night and since then I have restarted my computer, had it turned off for hours, and I've even tried it on gimp and it's the same.


Ruled out that it's my monitor, tried a different one that I know works perfectly and it's still the same.


I've double checked all drivers, and monitor profiles, and drivers for my monitor, and colour profiles, and colour management, my graphics card settings, device manager for problems with any hardware, and everythings coming back fine. Could it be that my graphics card is old and just needs replacing? I'm not good with which one to buy so would getting a new one the same be of any help? The computer is about 6 years old, and the only thing changed on it is the RAM and hard drive.

I don't really want to end up not using this computer anymore if it's a simple graphics card issue, I just don't know how to tell if it is.


 

 

The thread that is from is here if you want to see some suggestions I've already had.http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=vi ewtopic.php&t=423942&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

My username is 'Ao'  on there so that is me explaining the problem.

 

To add to that...

 

Here is another example of what is happening.

example.png

 

I'm thinking from all the answers I got from google its a graphics card problem. Only problem is all the updates are installed, and I can't find anywhere that sells my graphics card to buy a new one. So I need to know which graphics card will work with my system right now?

 

I've done some tests so you can see my system details. Im clueless with which one to buy so please help.

 

Here is the first system information....

Please help me? I need to know whether or not there is something I might have missed that I can try, and/or which graphics card I need to buy that is going to work with my system as it is now.

 

Thank you all so much in advance! Really hoping to get this problem fixed, as I use Photoshop daily for work as a 3D texturer, and have already been without for 3 days now which is a liftetime in texturing!

 

Edit to add: I use Photoshop CS4 version 11.something, and I've installed the latest patch.

    Do a test on a 2000x2000 pixel image and see if banding still occurs.

     

    On an image thats 256 x 256px would be one color per pixel. So a small area on that same image, would not have enough shades to create a smooth gradient.

     

    Thats my theory anyway. I beleive 16 bit image makes my point moot, but hey maybe?....

    What color profile is associated with your monitor?

     

    Have you used a device or process to calibrate/profile your monitor's characteristics?

     

    I skimmed through all of the info you posted above and I don't see information pertaining to these questions.

     

     

    Quite often the system automatically installs a profile for a particular monitor that comes from the monitor manufacturer, and amazingly these often seem to be quite flawed.  At best, they're likely not to describe a particular monitor connected to a particular video card very well.  At worst they can utterly botch the display from color managed applications (like Photoshop).

     

    The profile is associated with the monitor at the operating system level.  Click Start and type color management in the search box to get to the pertinent dialogs.

     

     

    You should know that the images in the screen grabs you posted above don't seem to be flawed as displayed on my monitor, at least I'm not seeing any obvious banding.  Do you see any banding in this image?  It's perfectly smooth here.

    Yes, your images all appear perfectly smooth to me here.

     

    Try this as a test to confirm or eliminate that the problem is with the monitor profile you are using:

     

    1.  Go into your OS Color-Management dialog and choose the Devices tab.

    2.  Ensure your monitor is selected in the Device field at the top.

    2.  Check the [  ] Use my settings for this device box.

    3.  Click the [ Add.. ] button.

    4.  Scroll down as needed to the profile named sRGB IEC61966-2.1, select it, and hit the [OK] button.

    5.  With that sRGB profile selected, hit the [ Set as Default Profile ] button.

    6.  Log out and back into Windows to make sure everything is aware of the change.

    7.  Open an image in Photoshop and see if it's still posterized/banded.

    Photoshop's color settings and those you are manipulating in the OS Color Management dialog are related but not the same thing.

     

    Did you try EXACTLY what I said in post 6 above before?  If not, please do so.  It will take only a minute.

    Sorry to make you jump through that hoop, but now we can say that the problem is not a monitor profile issue, even though it sounds very much like a bad monitor profile.

     

    It's possible it's a hardware problem...  Have you tried checking your cable connections, and even swapping in a different cable between computer and monitor?

    Another thing to try, if you haven't already, is to go into Photoshop's Edit - Preferences - Performance dialog, disable the [ ] OpenGL Drawing setting, and close and reopen Photoshop and retest.

    Did you say you are seeing the problems from apps other than Photoshop (e.g., Internet Explorer)?

     

    If so that wouild imply something wrong in the monitor or video card. 

     

    You've said you've already tried a different monitor and cable...  Process of elimination:  Do you have a video card you can try (assuming your GPU being Intel implies it's on the motherboard)?  You might find that a new video card, something like an ATI Radeon HD 6670, might breathe new life into your system anyway.

    Does your system have the ability to take a (pretty standard) PCIe x16 card?

     

    The video card I mentioned has a fairly low power supply draw, which can be important if your computer has only a basic power supply.

     

    Edit:  There are some 6670s listed on the web page you linked-to.

    Did you get a manual with your computer?  If not, or you no longer have it, you could search for the model online.

    If I've not taken a wrong turn in doing a quick search myself, this may be your motherboard:

     

    http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket775/D945GCCR.sh tml

     

    If that's accurate, you should definitely check my work to be sure I didn't get it wrong, then you have one PCI Express (PCIe) x16 expansion slot.

    I didn't read the whole thread and I may be missing something but I gather the problem could be incapable monitor and getting a better video card may not fix the problem. It also could be bad monitor hardware settings like increased contrast.

    The choice of which graphics card to buy is yours.  The 6670 is the one I recommend when asked, because it's both pretty fast and draws only minimal power from the computer's power supply.  That latter consideration is important.

     

    For Photoshop use I usually advise people to try to choose a card that scores at least 500, ideally more than 1000 on this benchmark:

    According to ATI they recommend 400W, and they're being overly conservative I think with that requirement.  The card itself draws about 70W as I recall.

     

    The x670 line of ATI cards are low power users while still delivering very good performance.  In fact, these cards don't even need a separate power connector from the power supply.  I have the 6670's predecessor myself, the 5670, driving two 1600 x 1200 monitors.

     

    You would be adding the ATI card's power draw to the computer, though you might get a little back when the onboard display adapter is disabled in the BIOS.  If you have a lot of extra hardware already in there - e.g. more disk drives or something - you might find it could tax a 300W power supply.  But if that card is the only thing added to your system it will most likely be fine.  Another option is to also upgrade the power supply.  Such things are available from local high tech stores.

    Just one other thing...  Your computer overall is getting a bit old and is kind of underpowered for graphics work.  Maybe the time is coming when rather than put more money into your old system you'll want to consider getting a better system overall.

    I just don't think they are going to have stock of the 6670 for a while because of the offer and want to get this sorted.

     

    See if you can find an ATI 5670 then, and try to get one with 1GB of graphics RAM.  I tend to favor performance over price, so you'll have to make your own judgment.

    A DDR3-equipped card will be slower than a DDR5-equipped one, but in your case it might not be noticeable as other factors in your system may be the main bottlenecks.

    You're welcome.  I know that video card will give you a better computing experience than your onboard Intel GPU.  I just hope it fixes the problem you're seeing - it sure seems as though we've eliminated everything else.

    I'm sorry to hear that.  I thought you had sufficiently isolated the problem to your onboard video adapter before.  In any case, the ATI will give you a greatly enhanced computing experience, though it occurs to me that you need make sure all the drivers that were active for the old card have been disabled/removed and the latest ATI drivers installed.

     

    Can you take a screen grab AND a photo and post them here, so we can see what you're actually seeing?  The gradient screen grabs you put up before all look clean and smooth.

    I went back and skimmed the whole thread, and at this point I would look very hard at the monitor itself. I agree with what was said above:

    I didn't read the whole thread and I may be missing something but I gather the problem could be incapable monitor and getting a better video card may not fix the problem. It also could be bad monitor hardware settings like increased contrast.

    As long as the monitor profile is ruled out, I think it's safe to say that this is not a color management problem. Photoshop color settings should have no bearing on this. And with the video card also ruled out, that basically leaves the monitor. Which one is it BTW?

     

    I would also like to point out that, like Noel, I see no problem with the examples you posted above (nor with Noel's example).

     

    PS - the 6670 is a fine GPU. I just got one myself

    Well, you had done a good job before describing it.

     

    And you see this when your image is displayed with any application?  Have you tried any tools that avoid any form of color-management - e.g., something like the freeware IrfanView image viewer?

     

    That sure looks like an egregious color-management problem, but I can see how it could be a monitor problem as well.  But it's hard to imagine, assuming your answer to the above question is yes (it's like that from any app) that it's some kind of system software problem.
