Can We REALLY Remove Banding? | Photoshop Tutorial

8-bit or 16-bit? Explore the Science Behind Why Banding Happens and What Can We Do to Remove It with Photoshop! In this video, join me on a journey to understand the properties of banding, why it occurs, and how it reacts to image quality or bit-depth.

We will also touch upon a variety of subjects like whether blurring removes banding or which bit-depth to work on: 8-bit or 16-bit? I hope this tutorial helps you. Thank you for watching 🙂

loving your tutorials, thank you 🙂 btw you can’t say ‘much more better’ in English, as ‘better’ is already comparative. Much more + adjective is ok 🙂 Hope you don’t mind me saying this.

Each bit doubles the color depth. 16 bit has 256 times more depth than 8 bit.

John Michaelson says:

Very useful for some of my astrophotos that I need to stretch but can only do so much with curves before lots of banding in the dark background starts showing up. I try to shoot 16 bit but sometimes need to post-process in 8-bit. Thanks!

Phend Hein says:

I still see banding at 16 bit ._.
