I downloaded this banner background image and noticed that there are horizontal line artifacts that are extremely difficult to erase without having to go through a lot of trouble. I noticed them first when i bumped up the contrast to create a displacement map. At any decent size these lines are visible and are clearly not supposed to be part of the image.
If i had to guess, I'd say this was a vector graphic at one point that was saved as jpeg and the author left the artifact in by accident. Anyway, I want to report it and if possible be refunded the spent credit for the image.
I can confirm there is definitely a problem with the image. Grey lines in the banner.
Thanks. I should have thought to do that.
Sorry for the trouble it has caused to you.
As Brad already mentioned that the above file is faulty, I am adding 1 image license to your account so that you can use it against a different image.
Hope that helps!
