Re: 8 verses 16 bit



You will note from the notes Preston guided you to that Dan Margulis believes there is no practical advantage to working with 16-bit files.  Bruce Frasier takes an opposite position:

This issue has been debated many times in many forums - AFAIK no definitive answer has arisen.

| Applied Color Theory discussion group at
| http://www.ledet.com/margulis/ACT_postings/ACT-8-bit-16-bit.html
| 
| Theoretically, 16-bit color reduce banding when large color adjustments
