Re: [Gimp-user] Ppm 16bit handling

I noticed that when I open a 16bit ppm in GIMP 2.8, the file opens

file, the notification does pop up. My understanding is that current
GIMP 2.8 can't handle 16bit, regardless of file format. Is that

Yes, these warning dialogs are generated by the file-format plugin and
it seems the ppm plugin just silently discards data.

Gimp 2.8 is limited to 8 bit per channel, but if you feel adventurous
you are invited to try the current git version of babl/gegl/gimp and
experiment with the new high-bit-depth support. This still is strictly
unstable and has an inconsistent UI in lots of places. It is fun though

I hope this helps,
