Colour management problems when opening files in photoshop

Hi,

When I open a Blender file in Photoshop it looks quite different.

Thanks a million!!!!

Colour banding when rendering in cycles

Is there another alternative to adding noise in photoshop to get rid of this problem?

Please help!!!!! :cry:

However, it's no big deal to use the Render drop down menu.
Cheers :lol:

How to activate the F11 and F12 keys on a Mac laptop

Usually when this happens, either the window manager or the operating system is grabbing the keys before blender can see them. The fix is to un-assign or re-assign the keys outside of blender. Doing this is a platform-specific task. Thanks Stiv for getting back. I will follow up on your advice. Man...
