How do I Change to Bit Mode in Photoshop?


When creating digital designs in Adobe Photoshop, setting up the file or editing its properties can sometimes become as important as the image itself. Photoshop comes with a slew of editing tools to put all of that control at a user's fingertips. To take advantage of Photoshop's bit mode option, on-screen artists may set up a project from scratch or convert to bits with just a "bit" of time.

Starting From Scratch

  • Open Photoshop. Click the "File" menu. Click "New."

  • Type the name of the new graphic. Set the graphic's dimensions in the "Width" and "Height" boxes.

  • Pull down the "Color Mode" menu number drop-down and select the bit mode -- options include "1 bit," "8 bit," "16 bit" and "32 bit." Click the "OK" button. Notice the small parentheses in the title bar of the window now reflect the bit mode number.

Converting a File

  • Open Photoshop. Click the "File" menu. Click "Open."

  • Browse to the photo or image to change into bit mode. Double-click the name of the file to open it in the Photoshop workspace.

  • Pull down the "Image" menu at the top of the screen. Click "Mode." Select the bit mode from the fly-out menu, from "8 bits," "16 bits" or "32 bits." Notice the title bar of the window changes.

  • Click the "File" menu and select "Save As." Type a new name for the file to preserve the original format and click the "Save" button.
