One image contains more colors, hues, and shades

A 16-bit image provides us with 65,536 values for each channel instead of only 255 in an 8-bit image that used to be the only option available in ImageConverter Plus. Now our software is able to load, process and save 16-bit images. It’s not just a matter of a greater dynamic range. Extra values represent additional accuracy thus giving you more potential for realism.
