    If you choose Image - Mode - 8 bits/channel, does the Photoshop EPS (*.eps) option appear in the save formats list?

    Because the (by now utterly obsolete) EPS format does not support 16 bits?

    To be honest with you, the Save As (a copy) function actually DOES convert some formats from 16 bits to 8 bits automatically - JPEG for example.  Adobe did this because many people save 16 bit files as JPEG work products.

     

    So why not implement all the saves that way?  Why jack the user around to have to do it?

     

    It's not dweebish to ask at all!
