Banding on gradient

Apr 18, 2013 10:50 PM

I have been trying to reduce the amount of banding on the long background image on our site.


Seems that when I use a 1 pixel strip and repeat horizontally there is a slight amount of banding visible.  Is there any good ways in Photoshop to reduce this?  Has anyone here attempted using HTML5 gradient instead and seen if it causes less of an issue?

    Simple computer math - any 8bit gradient will eventually show banding. even if you used CSS gradients they would band, if the distance to cover exceeds the available levels of gradation. realyl not much you can do than to rethink your design approach.
