Hi gtirman, as far as I know the reason for working on yur photo in 16 bits is ot only to give you better but also it gives you alot bigger tonal range. You are also right in saying that your printer will not print them while in 16 bit as the tonal range is too much for the printer to handle, this is also true when viewing the photo on your monitor as it is only able to see so much of the colour spectrum. The reason for working on in 16 bit is to get more of the colour spectrum in it and then you need to convert it to 8 bit to either print it or view it.
I hopr this makes sense cause it's so hard trying to put it into words when it's in my head it makes sense and when Itry to explain what I want to say sometimes it just doesn't sound right.
