Are you exporting to PNG-8 or PNG-24? It will make a big difference.


Windows 10, Affinity Photo 1.7 and Designer 1.7, (mainly Photo), now ex-Adobe CC

That gradient needs far more dithering and/or noise applied to it, because the range of greys is quite narrow.

In this case the problem is caused by Imgur conversion to jpg when you uploaded it to Imgur. JPG's lossy compression is the culprit in this case.

However, can you provide us with the original PNG as well for inspection?
