Help please re 8 bits 16 bits
Jul 17, 2011

Suddenly images from my scanner are landing in Elements 8 as (RVB/16) instead of (RVB/8). I want them to be 8 bits so I have to convert them every time, but how can I get them to land in Elements 8 as 8 bits right from the start. I am really puzzled about this...

Some other details that may or may not be of help to solve this : I am scanning as I have always scanned. Lately I have been using a Wacom Bamboo from time to time.
Thanks for any help.
