Lately I have been taking some really terrible photo's with my 500D. They have been coming out with awful posterization/color banding straight from the camera. I have only been shooting in jpeg mode which could be the problem but I haven't seen this until now. I have been using the camera for about a year now and haven't seen this before. Any tips?

Hi, can you post the photos straight on the forum please, a 1st time poster with a dropbox link is not going to succeed too well...we'll think you are a spammer and I am sure you don't want that!

I feel like a real tool now - I opened up the photo's in a different program to scale them for the web and low and behold the problem is gone. Turns out it is the stupid windows picture viewer that is adding in the artifacts.

I had the same problem with the windows viewer, so now I use google picasa to view, much faster.

I managed to fix the windows viewer problem by following instructions I found on the internet (sorry, you'll have to google as it was years ago).
Something to do with the colour profiles and adobe files.
