hi anybody got this problem, when you apply gaussian blur to a gradient background, visible contours will appear? i am so frustrated, i tried different kinds of blur but still get this silly thing happening. anybody can help?
hello all, i see i am not the only one with this problem, when you get such a thing happening, does the contours appear when printed out?
here is a sample of one picture with contours after gaussian blur on the top left area.
The methods mentioned by others are probably very useful in countering various severity of posterization (i.e. colour contouring) : such as using more bit depth etc.
For those contourings which occur with very clean background such as in the picture shown, it can be solved by carefully selecting the area (either by magic wand tool and lasso tool or by a table PC pen etc.) and then apply adjustment levels to the selected area to narrow the output range so that the whole area is more uniform. There may be a slight loss of details at the edges, depending on how careful you're in selecting the area.
