View Full Version : Banding Issues

06-19-2012, 03:03 AM
In the CPP Image submission guidelines it stipulates that images be saved with a quality of 6 or 7 with a long edge of 650px. At this quality and resolution I am experiencing subtle banding in out of focus and background areas on a couple of images, will the judges disqualify images on the basis of banding?

Use a higher quality. Banding will be seen as a problem. Bottom line: prepare files as if they were final files for a client, and resize to 650 px on the long edge. I personally would think that 8 is an appropriate quality/compression level.

Does it give a maximum file size? I would use photoshop's save for web and just make sure not to go over the file size after resizing to 650.
