Hi all,
I'm working on a project that has a 16-bit display screen, and I can't find options for working in an equivilent.
The problem I'm running into is that my images are losing gradiation and looking really poor on the display, and I need to find a suitable way to produce images in 16-bit, namely 5-bits per channel with 1-bit Alpha. I've been through the Image/Mode menu and can't find what I'm looking for.

If I'm missing something or if someone has any ideas please let me know. I've even tried switching my moniter to 16-bit display. It don't work.

Are you using Photoshop CS? I have heard it can handle 16-bit.

16-bit per channel or 16-bits total? I'm looking to work in 16-bit total for the image. Maybe I ought to check out CS anyway...

I've never heard of photoshop having a (5bit/channel, with 1 bit alpha).

I'm working on a project that has a 16-bit display screen, and I can't find options for working in an equivilent.

Are you talking about your "Display" settings for your monitor? If so that's the amount of bits/pixel that your monitor can display, in other words your monitor right now is set to display 16 bits/pixel, or 2*16(2 to the power of 16), which gives you around 65,000 colors.

So that 16 bit display screen is only what you have your monitor setup to work with, which I'm assuming is what your talking about?
