I would like to know how to create banding instead of getting rid of it. I know everyone wants to get rid of banding but I want to exagerate or make banding where none existed.
You may think thats crazy-- but think how now adays people want to add digital disortion artifacts, bad old tv glictches and rolls, and film burn, dust and scratches. In a few years when we no longer use 8 bit, banding will be a "cool" old look effect.
Thanks in advance

Use the posterize Effect in the Stylize category combined with some harsh adjustments by using Levels and Curves before and after the Posterize... Alos consider Colorama for some of that stuff...
