How to Save a JPG as 16 or 8 Color Image, e.g.

In a previous Photoshop, I remember being able to preview a JPG before actually saving it--you could indicate how many colors to reduce the image to, such as 16 or 8, for example, and it would reduce and preview the image to only those 16 or 8 colors. I can't seem to find that capability.

That's Image > Mode > Indexed Color.

 

Only available with 8 bits per channel originals. Save to any format you like, there's a Preview checkbox in the dialog.

 

You can also do it in Save For Web, but there you can only save to PNG-8 or GIF.
