  If you are scanning to an 8bit file, it would make a difference and avoid
the histogram "piles" and "dropouts" (i.e., "combing").  That is, the
scanner software would make these adjustments with the scanner's internal
highbits.  If, on the other hand, you scan to a 16bit file it would make
absolutely no difference, and is my preference because PS offers better
(more intuitive) tools ... as well an ability for adjustments based on
selected areas (e.g., underexposed backlit subjects).
