    I just compared identical images in 2018 and 2019 editors, and quite frankly the 2019 looks really bad.

    This is what I see in 2019 (notice the rainbow effect):

    By changing the setting from "Normal Quality" to "Low Quality" also doesn't change. So maybe the "normal compression" mode was removed?

    In both editors I had compression set to "Normal Quality" and only 2018 looked smooth and without crazy rainbow colors.

    Do I have to change every single image in my project to "high quality" so they look like 2018 did?

    Here's the original image:


    Why are the default images so bad now?

    Rainbow effect only slightly apparent, but I never noticed it. It was nothing like what I'm seeing in 2019.

    I believe it's a regression. I submitted a bug-report for the issue:
    (Case 1132906) 2019.1: Color banding with "Normal Quality" texture compression

    Just a heads up, it should be fixed in 2019.3.0a2, according to the changelog:

    It will also be fixed in 2019.2.0b3. The 2019.1 backport is still pending.
