Hallo, I had a similar problem in the past. I dug up an 'old' message from January last year. As you can see, in my case the black density plot had nothing to do with a mesh setting. Maarten Maarten.vanderBurgt at icos.be on 26-01-99 07:44:27 PM Subject: [mg21412] [mg15538] Re: ListDensityPlot gives PostScript error Tom, Paul, Rolf, My ListDensityPlot went wrong with any simple array. It had nothing to do with a mesh being too fine or so. Reducing the number of colors from 24 bit to 16 bit as suggested by Tom below did solve the problem. For some reason ListDensityPlot has problems with 24 bit colors on some/all(?) systems.

I avoid it by reducing my color to 16-bit. Hope this helps. Tom On 18 Jan 1999 05:03:09 -0500, in comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica you wrote: >Hello, > >I have a problem making a ListDensityPlot.

I assume you have images with pixels > 200 x 200 Matheamtica try to draw black mesh lines and the mesh lines erase the density graphics below.
