8 BIT or 16 BIT COLOR?

posted on 1st of february, 2009

I have to ask, is anyone using 16bit color in their submissions? I use Adobe Lightroom for my workflow and have to reduce the image to 8bit color to work in one of my photoshop programs. Overall, is 16bit color recommended for stock images or is this reserved for printing? I seem to be doing okay with 8bit color, but I am sure looking at every little thing that can help me get an edge in this industry!

Thanks to all that respond,
