hello: Level: Intermediate OS: (sadly) Windows 8 Ia: Cs6
i just made a circle and then applied a Gaussian Blur to it but rather than getting a nice Round blur the result is square
is this possibly the result of the ongoing issues with the AMD - Win8 - Adobe thing?
it's not as bad when i use a slight blur but for what i would like to do i need a larger blur
also, i was wondering if anyone knows if the NVIDIA GPU's are having as much of a issue as the AMD b/c i have a few more days to return this puter
or does anyone know rather it's just a Win8 thing & no matter the processor as long as i'm run'n W8 i'll have these problems?
i have already updated drivers and set GPU to Basic
your thoughts, info, ideas or whatever are greatly appreciated
also, can you see faint lines through the image? i have no idea rather it's my laptop's screen or if it's something with Ia
thank you i'll check it out & let ya know
ps. can you see lines through the yellow color on your computer?
i currently have no other way to check it on an other machine. i'd really appreciate it if you could let me know.
btw ~ you were right about the advice you gave Thank You
@Kurt ... LOL
@ Scott ... on my monitor it looks like there are thin (about 0.5px) lines running vertically throughout the yellow and to me they seem more apparent in the lighter yellow than where the yellow is deeper in color.
thank you for asking me to clarify i really appreciate your time
i have no idea rather it's my laptop's screen
I believe it may be. This may be a good reason to consider your returning the laptop.
You could also try to create different gradients, radial and maybe linear att different angles and see.
long time "no see" hope all is well w/you.
yes, i have experimented with various gradients as you mentioned and i seem to get the most trouble with thr brightest colors and with radial gradients.
it's just annoying to have these lines while trying to create.
the monitor is generic and i've been unable to find any driver update ... no idea if that would even help. last update is listed as 2006
i'm also thinking it's the AMD issues that may be creating a problem with how things look as things may not be ... um, generating properly ... ?? for a lack of better words.
thanx for your input!! appreciate your time.
oh hey scott ... ... i thought you were just joke'n around with me i didn't mean any offense
i hear ya, i always had 20/20 but it certainly isn't any more
it's gotta be this computer. it's quite annoying and is much worse while on the internet.
it's the last straw ... between the AMD/Win8 "Flickering" thing & Basic Mode or Ps won't work at all thing ... this puter is headed back to its birth place.
Hey Jacob ... ya i've been blasting away in Ps as of late and also delving into Id too plus lots'a offline life stuff
well, off to "refresh" this beast so i can box it up. one day i'll have enough bread to get a machine i actually really want.
