The header graphic on this page looks fine when viewed on True Color monitor settings, but it appears choppy when viewed by High Color monitor settings.  Is there something I can do in Photoshop to reduce this chopiness for gradient fill?

Do most Internet users have True color settings for their monitor??

Looks ok here in both modes but here's something to think about. Gradients, especially big ones like that, dont/wont display well on systems that just plain dont have enough colors to display all the gradations. In that case you get "banding" and other than dithering, or using a narrower gradient, you cant get rid of it. It's a problem of the system, not the graphic.

You can get rid of this banding in gradient colors in your images. You can try these steps
1. Save your image by selecting Save For Web option. Save for Web dialog box opens.
2. Select Perceptual in the Color Reduction Algorithm drop down menu.
3 Select Diffusion in the Specify the Dither algorithm.
4. Select 16 colors as the maximum number of colors in color table. You can remove any color from the color table which you do not want to appear in the image.
5. You can play around with more settings and previewing your image till you get the desired effect.
