    Saving as flattened PNG -- gradients banding

    spot-on Level 1

      I'm sure there's something really, really simple I'm overlooking, but this is driving me nuts!   When I save FireWorks files as flattened PNG, gradients get badly banded. I am selecting PNG 24 or PNG 32 in the Options for the 'Save As' dialog, but the results are as if I'd selected .gif or maybe PNG 8 (see attached)

      I had this problem in CS4, too, but after trying everythign I could think of to fix it, concluded it must be a bug in CS4, or maybe somethign wrong with my install. But now my crispy-fresh FireWorks CS5 is showing the same problem.

       

      What am I missing? A hidden preference somewhere?
