Working with 16 bit files {video}

Last week, I posted “Bit depth in plain English”. Now that we have that foundation in place, let’s start talking about how this actually plays out in your workflow.

     Hi Elizabeth, thank you so much for this video! I too speak in plain
    English and appreciate you for doing so as well. :) This was very helpful, esp. being a video rather than written out.  

    I came across
    this info., also in regards to 8 bit/16 bit and wonder if you would have the time to read this short post and please tell me what your
    thoughts are on it. I went ahead and followed it, but wonder if I
    really needed to? I also wonder what your settings are at. Thanks in advance!

     Hi! Yes, I read that when it came out and found it helpful. I do think there’s quite a valid point there in that what’s the point of editing an image to look a certain way on your screen if it will never actually print or be viewed online that way? I’ve made a couple of changes after reading that post. Think they’re ultra valid points. :)

    Thanks Elizabeth for responding…and so quickly too!  Being new to Photoshop and Lightroom can be a bit overwhelming with how it all works.  I appreciate your help. :)
