Yes, internally Photoshop converts 16 bit tiffs to 15 bits where 0:32768 is the same range as 0:255 in 8 bits. Adobe's Chris Cox confirms it here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/792212 And I have verified it by creating 16 bit tiffs in Matlab and examining how Photoshop reads the. Note that Photoshop expands it back to 16 bits when saving tiff files by ...

That's not going to happen, I'm afraid. Samsung 500T is all you're ever going to extract from that image. Aside from the fact that it was shot in very low light with a flash, which has swamped a lot of it, it's also been sized up & perhaps sharpened from a much smaller image by the looks of it. This will not gain any information. You cannot create ...

Now the usual chromatic aberration patterns are purple/green and red/cyan but is green and red possible through simply shooting the photo? What photo? The video linked in the question is computer generated video. Each frame is computer generated, not a photo. If you wish to see green and red CA in a photo it's fairly easy to do. Just use negative film ...

For your needs, you don't need to go terribly overboard since you're looking for texture, not aesthetic image quality(unless i misunderstood you) Here i took a shot just for you, using an old t3i, tamron 16-300@300, plus 68mm of inexpensive extension tubes, and an on camera speedlight with a big bounce card. cropped to 10mp. the opal i measured with a ...

Any modern camera will have more than enough pixels to meet your needs, especially if we’re just talking about web viewing. Take this image for example (my apologies on it being a screengrab from my phone. The OG is over the size limit and I’m unable to mess with it at this time): That was shot with a 5Dmk2 at 21 megapixels. For my use cases, I go with a ...

It's all basically a trade-off between sensors size and image quality. Large sensor sizes give a better image but are harder to work with. If you want an 8mm bead to fill the frame, then on a DSLR you need a 3X magnification (full-frame) or 2x magnification (APS-C) because the sensor eight are respectively 24mm and 16mm. This is even worse for the 4mm beads:...

What you may be seeing is fake banding created by Photoshop. It takes shortcuts to display layered files more quickly that sometime affect the actual appearance of the image on the screen. To check to see if there is actual banding, you can either zoom into the image to 100% or temporarily flatten the image to remove the layers. If what you are seeing is a ...
