hi

I have a ccd camera with a software package that saves TIFF images as grayscale images, but they have 16 Bits Per Sample. (The TIFF6 standard only allows 4 or 8 bits per sample - so most readers can not read the images, or convert them to 8 bit images, but then the image contrast is lost). What is the best solution for this problem? (without losing the information contained in an image)

thanks
