    for some reason one of my 16 bit tif pix cannot be reduced to 8 bits!
    the 8 bit option is greyed out. i tried converting it to a psd but the
    8 bit option was still greyed out. any suggestions how to get the 8
    bit option back?

    Now that's a real technique you force the OP to learn, cuz as long as s/he
    (I have no idea is PS is Male/Female) makes a copy of the file to JPG/GIF
    etc. then it won't be nothing else but 8-bit
