Does Paint.Net support 16 bit colour depth while editing?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have found contradictory statements about that question in the web. Also, some say that images can be saved in a 16 bit format, but the 16 bit palette might not be available through the image editing process itself. I observed that the gradation curve tool indicates numbers from 0 to 255, which supports the theory that you're limited to 8 bit while editing.

 

Best,

Michel

 

PS: I'm importing TIFF, and save them as PNG, in case that this matters.

Correct, Paint.NET does not support editing in 16-bits per channel (64-bits per pixel).

Quoting the Popular Feature Requests thread:

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.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait
