Subject: Re: Saving RAW Image to PSD
Chris has just explained it to you:
RAW files are uninterpolated, single channel images…
PSD files are going to be RGB
That means that RAW images have only one third the number of channels than an RGB file.
RAW files are uninterpolated, single channel images, typically 10 to 12
bits per pixel.
PSD files are going to be… most likely 16 bits/channel
So, even if you save your images at 8-bits-per-channel color depth, you still have more than TWICE the number of bits per pixel.
If you read the FAQs (on the same page where you added this topic), go to the very last one and you'll find very valuable links to white papers that will help you understand RAW images.
