This sounds like in going from 48 bit color to 24 bit color, you're
losing spatial resolution. I never realized that before. That's what PS
actually does? Of course that IS dithering, not aliasing. Dithering is
something engineering deliberately does. Aliasing is something
engineering tries to deliberately avoid.
