View Full Version : Blending mode problem

09 September 2004, 11:02 AM

I have noticed this weird problem when I have used Multiply as a blending mode : (

I have no clue what causes those weird lines. They appear only with Multiply mode and with certain opacities.

Does someone know what causes this?
Have someone else confronted this same problem?

Is that Background + Layer 1 image on the right a screen grab or have you saved it out of PS? If you saved it out then it's nothing to do with your display or graphics card.
How many layers do you have in this image? It's most likely you've got a layer further down the stack that is showing through.

Itīs saved in PS.

Only these two layers. Itīs the Multiply mode which causes this... Weird.

ahhh... yes I've seen this before. Someone posted about it a while ago and I think I once saw it myself but just worked around it by doing something different. Halo: Do you actually know if this solves the problem? is this the cause?

Thanks a million, your tip worked :

you may want to play with the value a little to make it more in line with your gamma...i dont know why some people need this on though, its off on my system...but if it works then it works...just be aware that you have a non standard setting in your colour prefs :)
