If you have a computer that has plenty of RAM, a good processor, and you have plenty of space to store photos, go ahead and convert to 16 bit TIFFs, you would be amazed by how much color detail you can lose if you do a small amount of editing on 8 bit images.

With that said, I currently do not do that because my computer only has 256mb of RAM, as soon as I upgrade my computer and have plenty of storage space to spare, I will start doing this. Im just not looking forward to my file sizes of 150mb or so doubling.
