Subject: Re: Faux RAW Hoorah

There still is the issue of the smooth histogram when converting up from 8 to 16 bit.

Say I have an 8-bit image with 10 Adjustment Layers.

Flattenng this image in 8-bit mode will create gaps in the histogram.

However, converting this file to 16-bit, then flattening, then converting back to 8-bit will yield a smooth histogram.

As Thomas says, there is no free lunch, but Id be interested to hear what the actual advantage of this smooth histogram is. Because the histogram certainly is smooth after such a two way conversion.

And I know its not the same as starting out with 16 bits of data. Im just interested in answers towards if it is really beneficial beyond the histogram to do adjustments in 16-bit space.
