Nathaniel, you totally helped me fix an issue that I have been having for years on Instagram! You probably didn't mean to with this tutorial, but it helped me BIG time. I use an Android phone (Google Pixel 2 XL to be exact) and every time I try to add a gradient background to my photos, I get banding. It has happened on my current phone and on my old Samsung Galaxy s6. I have tried SO many different things: creating the gradient using the brush tool, using the gradient tool, adding noise, the "no more banding" PS action that I found online, adding blur, using the blur tool, using the smudge tool, different kinds of overlay layers (50% gray), blend modes, etc. I have literally tried a hundred different tips from friends and online. I figured it just came down to the Instagram compression algorithm - and that it prefers iPhone uploads over Android uploads. My friends that do the exact same things (using just adding noise) don't have this banding issue when uploading from their iPhones to Instagram.

Anyway, by adding the two 50% gray layers with different blending modes, and adding noise from the Camera Raw Filter, it totally fixes this issue for me! I can't thank you enough for doing this (even if you didn't mean to)! Thanks so much!!!

Great tutorial! How do you remember those color codes?!? I love when you say, "Let's try something purple, like! Great job!

I highly recommend that you guys check out the website of the artist "Magdiel Lopez". His work is incredibly unique and mesmerizing. I've never seen anything like it. The reason I mention him here is because he too does sliced portraits.
Thank you Nathan for yet another detailed tutorial.
