Well, here is the problem.

When I create a New File. And I look at the settings.
My RBG is set as:

Color Mode: RBG Color = 16bit

And I know it can do 32bit but it's not in the drop down box.
When I go to do gradients and other things. You can plainly
see where the gradient ends. And nothing blends well at all.


Also, when I go to "Save As". There are only 5 things to choose
from. I can't save as a .jpeg or anything.

So can somebody please try and help me.

P.S. I have uninstalled everything and deleted all the folders and
did a fresh install. And that didn't fix it.

I've never had the 32 bit options in the New File dropdown box. It's visible when I look at Image/Mode but it's always grayed out. Not sure why that is honestly. Your save as options are a little odd.

You could try setting Photoshop back to it's default settings. Here's how

You need to set your color mode to 8 bit not 16 or 32 then you'll get all the save options. 8 bit is the typical image editing mode and only a few image formats can save the extra data in 16 bit or higher images. Your probably getting funny gradients since your monitor can't display all the data in a 16 bit image.

At the moment the only applications that I'm aware of for 16 bit and higher color are HDRI lighting solutions for 3D and some very specialized feature film effects systems. If your simply looking to do image editing the extra data won't get you anywhere.

You know that actually makes sense. Good info to know. Never even occurred to me to ever use 16 bit. Think I'd have been wondering the same thing xBryce did had I tried.
