Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video A flexible filter workflow, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects and Filters (2012).
If you're taking advantage of Photoshop's ability to work with 16-bit per channel images. …Then you're probably deriving some benefit in terms of smooth gradations, …and a broader range of possible color and tonal values in your photos. …But that also means that you're missing out on some of the filters that are available. …Because many of Photoshop's artistic or creative filters only work with 8-bit per …channel images. For example, this image is in the 16-bit …per channel mode, that's indicated on the tab here. …After RGB, the number 16 indicates 16-bits per channel.…
I can also look on the Image menu under Mode and see which current bit depth is selection. …In this case, again 16-bits per channel. And so, if I go to the Filter menu, …you'll see that the Filter gallery is not available. …Some of the Filter submenus are not available, and even within some of those …submenus, you'll find that certain of the filters are currently not available.. …That's because many of the filters in Photoshop only support 8-bit per channel images. …
