I guess I'm behind the times!  I've been using Photoshop 3, and hadn't
heard a convincing reason to upgrade until you said this.  (The Photoshop
product pages on the Adobe site say nothing about 16-bit channels, and I
had to search quite a bit to find confirmation of what you said -- but I
did find it.)  Thanks for the info.
