opening a pic with image editor.
pic is jpg from NIKON D800
image editor show blackish areas as dark blue (=my setting)
these out-darkened areas show rectangular pattern in two cases:
1.) when applying correct color automatically _and_
2.) when opening this saved pic.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open image editor
2. open the jpg pics, created from NIKON D800
3. correct pics color setting automatically
4. use darklight with dark blue
5. watch the rectangular pattern.
potential risk: colored areas my show pattern in viewing/improving software
the rectangular pattern (will attach a screenshot)
for given homogeneous colored original areas, I will _never_ see any type of pattern.

screenshot showing misleading pattern
I do not see a misleading pattern, only camera noise.
Created attachment 81244 [details]
suspected pattern with reddish underlied lines (vertical and horizontal)
the reddish marked lines- that's what I take for suspicious
Check if they are 8 or 16 pixels apart. If they are, those are JPEG compression artifacts.
looks like beeing 8 pixels apart.
How does it refer on _png_-format I sent to KDE bug-report system??
Does png do similar artefacts as jpg?

PNG is lossless, so the artifacts do not go away, if you convert from JPEG to PNG.

so: artefacts are no bug, but a feature of jpg?
Yes, JPEG compresses 8x8 blocks independently. You can see it extremely when using very low quality values.
Anyway, this is no bug. If you want no artifacts, your complete workflow must avoid JPEG compression.
