    A common error - your image is probably 16-bit. Just go to Mode and change
    to 8-bit.

    but does it loose its quality that way?

    You lose some of the dynamic range in color... But what are you scanning?
    Film? Photos? What is your final output going to be to? Print? Web? If so,
    do your brightness/contrast adjustments first (if necessary) and then
    convert to 8-bit.

    In that case, you won't lose quality by converting to 8 bits/channel after you
    do your color correction with Cuves. Printing devices generally only accomodate
    8 bit images anyway.

    When you say "for print," do you mean "to be printed on a printing press" or
    "to be printed on an inkjet printer"?
