I feel like this must be a simple problem, but I can't find a solution on Google.
All of my photos are 8 bit, but when I open them I get a message at the bottom of the screen reading "exposure works in 32-bit only". When I save these photos as any file type (JPEG, PNG, ect) they seem to export as 32bits/channel. That is to say, that they appear very dark and saturated, exactly how they look in PS if I select the 32bits/channel mode option.
I may be getting confused between the 32/64bit versions of PS (i'm using 64bit CS5 at the moment.) But i'm really puzzled as to how I can export my images looking the same as they were when I imported them.
Thankyou in advance for any help.
Running Photoshop in 32- or 64bit is something different from whether an image is 8-, 16 or 32-bit.
Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?
