Flippin' facebook!

Recommended Posts


This has probably been asked before but I just can't understand what on earth am I doing wrong.  I've done a couple of photo shoots recently, and when I put the pictures up in facebook, I get horrible, HORRIBLE BANDING. What the heck am I doing wrong?

Here is what I have tried so far (all these are jpeg):

- Exporting as 16bit
- Exporting as 8bit
- Exporting at 2048 pixels (long side in Ps and Lr)
- Exporting at full res
- Exporting at 100 dpi
- Exporting at 300 dpi
*** Exporting as PNG (which gets better results but still it's there). 


***I work in sRGB***


And yes, I do not see the banding when working in Ps or Lr. It only happens when the Images go to FB! More than likely, I'm definitely doing something wrong, a setting is wrong, or FB compression just sucks bad. 


Any help is appreciated.

Then you have to live with it, sorry.

Just like the rest of us do.



Just out of curiosity, would dithering have something to do with this?

I came across a reding earlier today. I haven't tried this at home... You know what... nvm... this is got to be FB. The pictures look fine on the PC, I just don't know what on earth is FB doing. Kind of disappointing.
