    Displacement mapping - Info for Adobe

    Babble 2 Level 1

      This is not asking for help but just something I want to pass on to Adobe.   When using Photoshop CC 2014 and Photoshop CC and saving a .psd file of high contrast to be used as a displacement file, I could not get it to work.  After a lot of effort I found that if the Maximum compatibility box was not checked ( I had it turned off), the file would not displace the layer.  I was using Halftone stripes on a layer and it was converted to a smart object.   Turning on this compatibility made it work.  It should work either way.  I think this is a bug but most people would have it turned on by default and not notice.  However, that makes a larger file size.

      Thanks for reading,
