[Gimp-user] 16-bit: Photivo and Gimp

Gimp 2.8.x is 8 bit only. Wait for Gimp 2.10 or use the development
version Gimp 2.9.x

For 'buntu and derivatives this is easily installed using a PPA. see


Updates frequently but is quite stable and usable. This will replace
the existing Gimp 2.8.16 installation.

It is possible to run both if the 2.9 is a 'portable' application.
There are a few around.

Search for appimage. There is a 2.9.3 here that should work in most
https://bintray.com/probono/AppImages/  and

I keep an up-to-date 2.9.5 assembled in 'buntu 16.04 that should work
in your installation. Nothing guaranteed though. see


Used to be a fan of photivo, but development seems to have stalled in
2015. The gimp plugin stopped working for me. There are other tools,
RawTherapapee for example. If you have photivo from the dhor/myway PPA
it is there for installation.

Wow, great information, thanks!

As for Photivo Gimp plugin you referred to, is it the code that allows the "Send
image to external editor" function?

I'll give a try with RawTherapee, but Photivo, gave me the best results out of
the box, besides offering a ton of options if I want to go further in post

Once more, thanks for the great information
