    Painter 9 banding problem

    Hey all - I hope this topic hasn't been covered yet, if so I apologize. I have been working on an image primarily in painter and occasionally bringing it into photoshop for minor color adjustments. My image is 300ppi and 3000px across (letterbox format). I am saving out as a psd out of Painter to make it easier to transfer between programs. I have found that at some point during my workflow the image becomes heavily banded as if it was compressed or something. I am losing a lot of color information somewhere along the line. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? I threw a couple super close up images below to illustrate whats going on. This is the exact same area right after painting it and then after working on other areas for a while, taking it into photoshop and then back into painter.

    Your images aren't displaying but I wonder.....

    Have you installed the Painter IX 9.1 Update and the Painter IX.5 Update?

    As I recall, there was a color problem with Painter IX when moving PSD files to Photoshop and it was solved with one of the two Updates.

    Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!

    i know the banding occurs quite frequently for me when i do any transformations such as scale or rotate in painter
    i try to do that in PS to avoid it
    hope this helps
