32 bits/channel -> 8 and/or 16 bits/channel problem
Using PS CS5 trying to convert an image down from 32 to 16 or 8, as soon as I click the options it gives me a bunch of settings for HDR. Am I retarded and is this not possible or something? So confused right now. Please halp!
Should clarify, under "Image" -> "mode" when I try to click 8 or 16, all it does is bring up a dialogue box for fake "HDR" settings with no other possible options.
Somethings wrong, under image > mode it should be a bunch of options like RGB, CMYK, duotone and right below that should be 8/16/32. What kind of document do you have open? Screencap it for me..
"any one have a brazzers account i can use for like 20 mins?"
I originally tried with a TIFF, and then I saved a copy of that TIFF as a PSD. Neither of them give me the option, and in terms of other options only RGB is available, nothing else.
Converting from 32 bit to 8 bit, you lose a lot of information. Those dialogs essentially let you pick what information to throw away. Just play with stuff until the image looks the way you want

Yes, I understand that. But why is it trying to convert it into a fake HDR? Or is that just the title for the dialogue box?
That's odd. I've got a 8 bit jpeg open right now. If I do image>mode>32 it does nothing but if I try to go back to 8 it brings that up too. I think it's because a 32 bit image stores highlight data or something, maybe luminance, that the lower ones can't so you need to adjust it to get it the way you want.
So basically what was said above...
