Re: [Gimp-developer] viewing Dectris X-ray detector data

I was wondering how easy (?!) it might be to change the GIMP data input/output routines so that instead of reading/writing jpg images "GIMPX" could read/write Dectris X-ray detector format data...

In fact, we would really only be interested in a very small subset of all the image processing that GIMP can do.  For example, certain zones of the 2d detector need to be masked before further data analysis can proceed.  The ability to select contiguous regions based on count-rate would be very helpful.

thanks for any replies !


A quick look at the link provided indicates that these devices produce 20 bit data:
  "Dynamic range 20 bits (1:1,048,576)"

Currently GIMP is limited to 8 bits per channel, so it is not likely capable of dealing with these images at this time.
