Can someone explain these figures to me? Im talking about 8 Bits/channel in terms of imagery and pictures. I dont really get these. Is it the smaller the number, the better the picture?

And, I heard that there are also different colour channels? Like Red and Blue channels, are these just the channels in which the computer can read and identify?

And what about 48 bit colour? Is that in the same category as 8 Bits/channel? Or is it something totally different.

I need to know more about colours.

Thanks.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click here

And when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.
