Illustrator's Mesh gradients are not rendering well when imported into Photoshop CS5. I get 1 pixel high horizontal lines all over the artwork. Also, the gradients are not smooth, I get a lot of messy banding. I tried importing the same illustrator cs5 generated file into Photoshop cs3 and it worked well: no weird pixel lines and smooth gradients.

I'll share a picture if somebody tells me how to post it.

Are you placing the Illustrator files as Smart Objects? Can you post a PSD we can look at?

I tried everything. Smart objects, copy & paste, pixels, importing .ai, .eps. Same results every time. How do I post the image? (I'm using the facebook app.)

You could come directly to the topic on Photoshop.com:

There's an option to "Add Image" when you do a reply to the topic. I believe you can attach a PSD with this option.

Hi, Here's the image... I know it's been a while... I hand fixed it before (painting over it), but now I'm trying this again and still have the same issue...

Hi, I just wanted to add, that this is happening in the two PCs I have, only in CS5 (CS3 will work just fine > same exact file)

I think that's the same as an issue we've been investigating for a while (lines when AGM rendering from EPS or PDF).

I hope a fix comes out soon.. fixing this by hand is very time and energy consuming.

Unfortunately, the only fix I have is too huge to release in an update.

I am working on Hi Res photos in Photoshop CS5 as PSD files. On some of the photos, once I convert them to JPG or PDF, I get brightly colored horizontal stripes on part of the photo. On some photos, I get the stripes while the photos are still PSD files. In InDesign CS5, I get the same thing on some photos when I export as JPG and PDF. But, it doesn't happen to all the photos and it doesn't matter if I am on a PC or a MAC. In most cases these photos are taking 6-10 hours to perfect and these stripes are ruining my work. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? To make things really strange, in one particular case, I had the stripes on a PSD file in CS5. Then I opened it in CS3 and there were no stripes.
