Photoshop Action To Prevent Banding – No More Banding

If you are using Photoshop, you should already have encountered the issue of banding in gradients.

This usually happen in 8-bit but, even when working with 16-bit, this can occur if you need to apply an 8-bit filter.

No More Banding is a Photoshop action which automatically converts your document into 16-bit and applies a new layer to the top of your group/document which fixes fixing all the banding.

P.S. There is a detailed read on the technique here.

    @Alexufo That dithering option is only available for gradient layers. What about the other layers such as shadows, textures, and any other non-gradient blending?
