There's confusion over the definition of terms here.
When referring to the bit depth of an image, it's usually stated in "bits per channel" (bpc)
8 bits = 8bpc
16 bits = 16bpc
32 bits = 32bpc
For an RGB image, 8bpc would yield a 24 bit image (8bpc X 3 channels)
For a CMYK image, 8bpc would yield a 32 bit image (8bpc X 4 channels)
I would guess your client is asking for 8bpc images. Their confusion comes from hearing that CMYK images are 32 bit files. (I'd venture to say that they work a lot with CMYK...)
Al images bound for the internet should be 8bpc.
The only current use for 32bpc files is HDR.
Engage in a little client education. They'll appreciate it.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the really clear explanation! It really helps clarify my doubts! thanks again! ;)
I have created a drop down box with two items listed in it. I want to make each item in the list a different color. Can someone please explain to me how to do that?
