  1. Many thanks! I will order the print and see! Again, thank you!
  2. Do you see the lines towards the right side of the backdrop? Also, as you can see the mask / layer, I wanted to keep the bottom of the paper where it shows the shadow. Would this create the banding issue as well?
  3. Yes, I cropped it into 8x10 after I saved psd file and flatten. Here is the screenshot of the layers panel.
  4. Hi Damien! I followed this tutorial https://www.damiensymonds.net/preventing-banding-in-backdrops/ and edit the attached photo. As you can see the attached photo, I see vertical lines (right side of the dad). I even increased the noise from 5% to 13% but the banding still bothered me and I am sure it will show when i print it, correct? Could you please let me know how to fix this? Thanks! Cathy

    Oh, I see... I thought there was a way to compare side by side (monitor vs laptop) when you asked me which one looks better so I was trying to do it to figure it out. But I guess there is no way to compare them?

    Oh, I thought there was a way to switch to another saved icc profile, no?

    Hi Damien! You are right.. I should have used the images with various colors for the test prints. I ordered these prints and noticed that most prints came out warmer. The calibration setting is based on the laptop here though. I wasn’t sure how to switch back to the setting for my monitor. Could you please help me? Thanks!

    Hi Damien! Thanks for your reply. Sitting underneath the device? I opened the brightness window on top of the i1display program like the first pic. Sorry, could you please let me know what to do in order to resolve this problem?

    I am trying to calibrate my laptop. I adjusted the brightness so that the measured white luminance would be 100, however, it jumps up to 120 as I close the adjustment window. Does this ever happen to you Damien? Please see attached photos of before and after I close the adjustment window. So I just leave it as it is? Thanks.

    Got it, thanks! Do you ever manually change the contrast on your monitor?

    Yes, monitor looks good, REALLY?! I am checking the settings again now and according to this laptop setting and this external monitor setting, they are both Display type - White LED White point - Native Luminance - 100 Contrast Ratio - Native Version 2 But the only difference i see is that during calibration, you checked Brightness only for laptop setting but for the external monitor, you checked both RGB Controls and Brightness. Could you please verify this? Thanks!

    Sorry, I only recalibrated my monitor, not MBP..... Will do it tomorrow morning. BTW, I checked the calibration method for both external monitor and laptop, and I didn't see any differences in settings, correct?
