Know that! The problem was lack of 16bit support for the plugins, which
is crucial for working with Photoshop the Photoshop way.



That was true for some plugins, not all. IIRC NIK and Topaz worked fine
in 16 bit mode. i am not aware of any that work in LAB mode, but then
when I work in LAB mode I really don't need plugins.


16bit support was enabled in CS according to the Wikipedia page sited...


nope. it was added in 2.5.

read it again.

Liar. From the link in the above: "16 bit per channel layers, painting,
and adjustment" were added in CS/PS8


scroll up to version 2.5, where it states "16 bit per channel support".


Liar. Not very complete such. Maybe reading and writing to file and not
much more. Certainly not layers, which was added in CS...


layers was v3, with adjustment layers in v4, something the gimp doesn't
have and according to its road map, won't ever have, making it useless
for anything serious.

Since Gimp is useless for serious editing you should have included 'OT'
in the subject line.


I must not understand the significance of 'rec' in the group name.


I think it's short for recreational as in a hobby rather than a profession.
There's other .rec. groups too.


....and here comes a mighty recreational WHOOoosh!!

it still does not have adjustment layers, something photoshop had in
1996, making it still useless to any serious editing.

Photoshop was eight bits per channel until CS, IIRC...

CS was 32 vs 64 bits for addressing of memory, which was required for
having more total RAM for larger images.

Having 16 bit channels dates from November 1992 (version 2.5):

I started with PS4. Many other plugins only worked in 8 bit mode.
