Problem converting 16 bit TIF files

I am using "Pixillion" version 8.09 to convert a 16-bit TIF file of 48 bits per pixel to reverse the image.  The scanner requires the emulsion side of the image to be reversed to produce Optima and results.  In using this program as the last step 2 reverse all pictures in a folder it downsizings the that TIF files to 8 bits.  This is fine with JPEG but not 16 bit TIF files.  Is there a solution?

I have all 100 MB 16-bit TIF file that I want to reverse mirror and produce a 16-bit output TIF file and it seems like it only downsize it to 8 bits and converted to a 23 MB 8-bit TIF file.  The filter and the structure of the folder works great but it seemed like it only outputs an 8 bit TIF file not as 16-bit TIF file.  Is this true?

Hello, I tested the program and the only time I got the 8bit images was when selecting the 256 color option under options.  If you don't use this option you will get 16 ir 24bit images, depending on the original file bit depth.

I'm frustrated because the 100 MB file I mentioned above has 48 bits of color 16 each for RGB.  Once I mirror the TIF file, it is 1/5 the size and the color depth is only 24 bits which would be 8 bits for each RGB.  I did see the 256 option and did not check it because I read about it and that would just defeat everything.

"Chris75" so you have tried a 16-bit TIF file which would produce about 100 MB file and do anything to it rotate it or reverse it and it would output a file of approximate the same size?  When I do that exact same feature it takes my 100 megabytes file and crunches it down to a 20 MB file of only total 24 bits 8 bits per color but TIF format.  The 256 bit option is not checked.
