Re: FINALLY, I understand!


Since you understandand, maybe you can enlighten me about this 16 bit business. When in RGB (a or s) mode, is the in-camera file saved as 16 or 8 bit? If its saved as 16 bit, then it would seem wise, from what was said above, to postprocess in 16 bit mode, if possible. But what if its saved as 8 bit in camera????

And how does Raw fit into the 8 vs 16 bit discussion. I read, above, that it is saved with 24 bits in camera. Is that correct?

A few months ago I asked you to help my niece, and you did. Now its time to help me.
