    Sad to hear you are bedridden.
    Let me guess, ... when I told you to go **** yourself you tried to do
    it, didn't you?

    So who's watching the shop(s) while you're gone? Julian?

    Get a nurse to roll you down the hall while you take a stepped out
    pano of the whole ward.

    IN that case my 3 months "old" Ezio must be getting worse too!

    You ought to try it sometime. It's amazing how much shows up on a screen
    that isn't there in a print. Oh that's right! Your monitor doesn't show
    up banding either does it?

    You must have some amazing shit to work with Bret. Works the way you
    want it to but everyone else sees what you can't.

    Odd that the 24x36" print of it hanging on my office wall doesn't show
    any banding.

    It's funny I spent three years in the early 00's in the tourism industry
    and had never heard of Doggy till he abuses me a few years ago after I
    asked him a question about a calendar maker he was selling

    Douggie just e-mailed me good news from the hospital today.
    His proctologist just called. They found his head.

    You have yet to explain how prints of my image show no banding, and
    while I can't see any and others can't see any so-called banding, you
    still claim that my (our) monitors are at fault.

    How about posting a crop of the offending area so that we can see what
    you're talking about?

    What good would that do? You'd be seeing the same thing and think there
    was nothing wrong with it!

    Here's a tiny little tip for you us Pro's have used for years.

    To get a really banding free picture with gorgeous creamy skin tones and
    smooth skies... Check it with your Ezio or Samsung LED monitor in 16 bit
    instead of 32 bit but keep PS set at 32 bit before you "think" it's
    right and don't waste your time printing it on an inkjet because it'll
    lose maybe 30% of it's potential detail and you'll do like you are now,
    showing us all you ain't so smart after all.

    Maybe then you'll realise that inkjet printers magically lose detail in
    photos. Use an old Pegasus or even my historically old Durst Lambda to
    print the same photo and like magic, all that missing detail returns to
    show the banding and other flaws Photoshop leaves in it's wake.!

    Now don't say I never tell you anything, OK?

    I don't have to explain ANYTHING about your prints, fuckwit:
    I've never seen them and don't intend to.
    Just like when I pointed out the stupid bitch had a fucked up monitor and all of
    you said no. Turned out it was stuffed, didn't it?

    Try adjusting yours for less contrast and brighter low key and watch the banding
    show up to the evidence.

    Oh yes: and so far NO ONE else has claimed they don't see it. Once again you're
    listening to the voices.
    How about you adjust your monitor instead of asking others to do your basic setup?

    The guy can't even see the sharpening halos in his "original" sized images, let
    alone banding...

    Atheist Chaplian wrote this in this very thread:

    "I have two calibrated monitors here (a real professional photographer
    friend came
    around with his ColorEyes Display Pro) and I don't see this banding
    you speak of."

    Let's put it this way. If the banding doesn't show up on any of my
    monitors (or AC's monitors), and the banding doesn't show up in
    prints, then why should I worry about it? If you see big hairy
    monsters in all my photos and nobody else does, that doesn't really
    concern me.
    Not surprising that when asked to produce a sample of the banding, you
    couldn't do it.
    Talkin out your ass, as usual.

    Hey Bret... This is joke, right?
    If you actually believe AC has anything vaguely resembling a monitor
    capable of calibration to a "Professional" standard, you're as big a
    lunatic as he is.

    Listen to those people who know what they are talking about to help you,
    not the idiots trying to make out they have a clue. I'm truly surprised
    Mark T hasn't chimed in with his "calibrated CRT" screen for a bit of
    recognition. ROTFL.

    Ask yourself a simple question. If this fool calling himself AC (today)
    had to get someone else to "calibrate" his monitors, how much does he
    know about what he's trying to make out he's some sort of expert at?

    If you want to know how to prepare a photo for printing on a high
    resolution, continuous tone printer, I.E. without banding - don't go to
    the kindergarten for help. All you'll get is a bunch of wannabe idiots
    beating their chest about how much they know... Which is this much... 0.

    In all seriousness Bret... You'd have been better off spending your
    stash of cash on a LED monitor and Pro calibration system than another
    piece of crap from Canon that's main claim to fame is an ability to make
    a movie but not focus the camera whilst doing it.

    Serious mate, if you were half as smart as you try to make out, you get
    your priorities in order. Taking pictures of "wild" life in parks with
    an expensive camera is a total waste of time if you can't make pictures
    any better than you did with your 20D.

    FWIW I viewed Bret's seagull pic on a professionally calibrated
    monitor today and saw no banding. Since I'm not a professional I
    asked one of the managers at Vistek that I have known now for over 25
    years. He's been a professional photographer for over 35 years. I
    asked him to check the pic for banding and you know what, he saw
    nothing. Case closed.
