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 I´d 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. I´m just interested in answers towards if it is really beneficial beyond the histogram to do adjustments in 16-bit space.
