Does file type plugins support 16bits images?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I created some file type plugins already. But currently I read 16bits color depth files and have to convert the pixels to 8bits (ARGB), so I loose a lot of color depth information.

Is it possible to have 16bits per pixel images in PDN, edit them and save them using a file type plugin?

To be clear I can develop the file type plugin myself, I only need some help in handling 16bits per pixel images.

 

Kind regards,

Berthold

Seems unlikely.

CMYK support, or 16-bits per pixel support -- Not gonna happen. If you really need good software for working with images for printing, or need to work at a professional level, then I must honestly point you towards Adobe Photoshop.
