    Photoshop CS5 - gradient produces a black area

    calseeor

      Hello all,

      I've used some colorful gradients in photoshop but recently they are appearing to be partially black (black was never part of the gradient). When I save these images and view them in other paint/viewer programs, the gradient looks fine however in photoshop they look terrible.

      One attached image is a gradient as saved from photoshop as a png and you can see the colors are fine. The other attached image is a screenshot of that same image as seen in photoshop. Note the black center which is the problem.

      Any idea what could be happening here? Nothing on my computer has changed.

      I run Windows 7, 64 bit with 16 gigs of ram and an AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series video card (I do wish I had an Nvidia but that's a topic for another thread)

       

      Thanks and regards,

      --Eryk
