So i am going through my pics from my trip to the grand tetons and I am noticing on a lot of shots very, very, very tiny vertical lines throughout the shots. I mainly notice it on shots with blue clear sky... but I have no idea what caused it? And want to know if there is a way to get rid of them in CS3. This is not when im printing them and these are not scanned shots. This is when i look at them in Bridge or CS3. Ugggg... i am so pissed... its not like i can go back out and shoot again. Anyone every deal with this? I was using my canon 30D with 17-40L. Have never seen this in any of my shots before....and it's not in all of the shots.

Much appreciated!

Load one into your workshop then post the thumb link here using the image id number and the second icon from the right above the post text box.

I've seen something like this before. It was when IS was switched on the lens, but the camera was on a tripod. The IS was trying to compensate for movement which did not exist so made weird lines. They were more diagonal though and it was a looooong time ago...

ok... not sure they will show...here is the pic but the lines are gone when i go from the RAW file, to a jpg and save for web. They were vertical throughout the entire pic[thumb]1107GT.jpg[/thumb]

ok got it... so you can see them a little... i had to over sharpen a bit to bring them out....on a larger file its much more pronounced........ here it looks more like noise, but on the raw file they are very tiny uniform vertical lines......

The only vertical lines I can see, even on the large view, are the trees. Where are they, in the sky?

If I pop the image into PaintShop Pro and crank up the clarify adjustment, I can see them. Looks like a noise pattern to me.

I can see them, just. No idea as to what is causing them - are they clearly visible on the unedited, straight from camera photos? Might be helpful if you post a 100% unresized crop.

This is the original, only thing done wasro resize it and a smart sharpen to bring out the lines. Yes, it is on all originals in bridge, and when i bring into CS3. It does get better when i resize, and i tried saving one for WEB and the lines are gone on some, not on others. It seems like every time i do something different ( crop part, or resize, or save for web,) the results come out different each time. Not sure if this is a software issue or a camera issue? Cant make heads or tales out of it.

yo spiff,

actually they are throughout the picture, but i only notice them against a blue sky.

this is a crop from another image... this might be better. On the original, it doesnt show much, like i said changes at different times. You can see what im talking about on this image.

I can barely see them, if it bothers you select the area with the selection brush, then use the blur tool at about 10% to smooth it out.
Edit to add this on your first shot.

Does this occur on both RAW and jpeg images?
07/31/2009 10:43:01 AM · #22
yes, it appears on both the RAW anf jpeg files. I would really like to figure it out, I am going up to Acadia National Park next week for some more shooting....... the help is really appreciated.

Vertical banding can occur when the sensor gets too hot. You may have what is called vertical banding. Try switching your camera off for a few minutes, re-start and see what happens.
