Plaid pattern over image when previewing
Reply to this topic
[Post New]
I've never had this happen before, but my images have a sort of plaid pattern overlaid on them in photo viewer. It disappears when I click to zoom. The pattern is not there when viewing in photo viewer & browser or photo browser only.

Image with plaid pattern

Any idea why this is happening?

Hello Myemerald,

That's a particular issue I've not experienced with PhD. Thank you for uploading the screenshot showing the problem. Let's try to narrow the possibilities.


  1. Does the same issue occur in other photo viewers with that photo? (e,g, Windows Photos)

  2. Is the problem occurring with all photos or only particular ones?

  3. What options do you have checked under Preferences > Hardware Acceleration?



Could you please upload the original photo so members can test?

Thank you Pix.

It now appears to be random. When I uploaded the exported photo to my Google Drive, even though it is now fine in PhD, I see a faint plaid over it in the GD viewer.

Is the problem occurring with all photos or only particular ones?

It was occurring on all photos in this project (I haven't looked at other projects). Just now when I went back to this project it was NOT occurring.

What options do you have checked under Preferences > Hardware Acceleration?

Enable Hardware Acceleration for video decoding.

Here's the original exported from PhD (with edits).
Here's the original straight from the camera.

This only happens on viewing those two photos over an internet connection. Suspect that the dithering is necessary because of the server bandwidth.

That would explain why it's not consistently happening.

Hello again Myemerald,

There is no display issue with your original photo straight from the camera here. That won't surprise you because, as you've said, the issue seems to be a bit random.

In any case, I'm pleased things appear to have returned to normal & you can get on with your editing.
