Re: filmscanners: ColorSteps?

Hi, I think "posterization" is the term you are looking for. You can
check it out in Photoshop by selecting the area and examining the
histogram (levels). Very interesting that it prints out okay! Sorry I
don't have any idea what the cause is.


ps "grain aliasing" just looks like a grainy image.
