    Do you see weirdness in this PSD at 100%, 50%, 25% zoom?

      While looking into something for another thread here, I ended up making an image that looks entirely different at several different Photoshop zoom levels.  I saved it and can reproduce the strangeness even in a new Photoshop session...  I wonder if you see it too...




      Note that no texture is selected for the Bevel and Emboss effect.


      Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate; everything up to date and otherwise solid and stable.


      Here's what I did to create this beast:


      • New document, transparent, 2400 x 2400 pixels, 16 bits/channel
      • Draw circular ellipse path the full size of the document.
      • Shrink the path to 70% with Free Transform.
      • Stroke the path with a hard brush, medium gray color.
      • Layer - Layer Style, Bevel & Emboss, Chisel Hard.
      • Filter - Blur - Radial Blur, Spin.



      Something's definitely wrong with the Chisel Hard Bevel.
