I am experiencing significant color banding when I use the Color Dodge blend mode with a very dark colored gradient layer style. I have even tried enabling dithering on the gradient layer style, with rather poor results. Here is what it looks like:
Here is a small PSD demonstrating what I'm experiencing.
This is my first time using the Color Dodge blend mode. It's my guess this either has something to do with this particular blend mode (I'm not familiar with how it works) or the gradient I'm using (which is extremely dark, possibly to the point that it creates precision issues).
How can I eliminate this color banding problem? Is there another configuration I can use that will get me nearly the same colors, but without the color banding?
