Gradient Artifact Problem


Recommended Posts

I've been using PDN For a while, and theres something i just noticed, that Gradients and Vignettes often leave a JPG Artifact to the pictures, like the color isn't smooth and the bars of color are visible, Is it just paint.net or my monitor ? it's starting to get annoying cause it's the first things i see on my pictures.

A computer display can only show a finite number of colors. There is no such thing as a perfect gradient on a computer, as that would require an infinite number of colors between the 2 endpoints of the gradient. The best you can hope to do is to dither it, which is what the Frosted Glass effect does.

Like I said, you have to play with the setting until it looks good. Note that I said "good," not "perfect."
