    I'm looking for a good and inexpensive image editor that can do
    16-bit-per-channel color. I've looked at Cinepaint (used to be Film
    GIMP) but it's based on a rather old version of GIMP and the project
    seems to have stagnated (haven't seen a new working version for Windows
    for a while). I've also considered PSP 8, but it doesn't seem to support
    16 bits per channel color. The only solution I'm aware of is Photoshop
    but the price is beyond my budget for a hobby.

    Does anyone know of an inexpensive image editing package that support 16
    bit/channel color?

    Thanks in advance.

    gimp just had a major release (version 2). They _may_ have extended
    gimp beyond 8 bits.

    ThumbsPlus 7 will. Currently in beta. I've been using this program for years
    and it just keeps getting better. You can try the beta for nothing and see
    what you think. I expect it to be out of beta in the next month or so.

    I believe regular price is about $100 and they have a special offer now if
    you order early for $10 off.
