I was thinking the same thing when I read this. I have worked for several medium to large commercial printers in the prepress department over the years and whenever we received 16 bit files, we always converted them to 8 bit. In fact we had to, none of our R.I.P.'s nor any of our direct to plate, direct to press systems would take them. I no longer work for a commercial printer so I wasn't sure if this had changed but apparently not. Maybe Walter has some specific purpose for 16 bit files? There must be some sort of application for them but I don't know what it is?

ok, thanks. I wasn't sure about that. When I send a pdf out to the press, they never said, that it needed to be 8 bit, so I thought I could send 16-bit. 


Never mind about the 16-bit then. I didn't know, that it wasn't supported by presses. Thanks.
