comment How can I create a black to transparent gradient without banding?
Thanks for the wealth of information. Knowing the universal limitations of gradients has now equipped me with a better sense of when to throw the towel in on the issue. I've opted for a noise solution but it produces an undesired grainy effect. It's the best I can achieve before the bands become too obvious. I honestly had no idea that gradients were so problematic.

I've added 1% noise. It's far from perfect but it's the best compromise I have at this stage.

Even at 300px X 300px, banding occurs. Here's an example of black to invisible: img203.imageshack.us/img203/9770/90687836.png ...and here's an example of the same on a dark background: img221.imageshack.us/img221/543/42940124.png

Gradient dithering is checked. The banding still occurs significantly. All I'm trying to achieve is a black to transparent gradient on a 3000px by 1340px PSD. If you have a minute to try for yourself, you'll see the problem.
