Opening 16 bit tiff files

Hello,

When opening a "16 bit" .tiff in XnView MP I get the message:

"This picture will be converted to RGB with 8bits per component"

I may be understanding incorrectly but I thought XnView MP was able to open "16 bit per component" (48 bit) files?

Thanks,

Mark

XnViewMP can load 16bits image but need to convert them in 8bits

Thank you.

To clarify....is this behavior different from XnView ('classic')?
The same message appears in both.

In the XnView Classic/MP "What's different..." thread it says:
"Support for full internal bit depth pictures 8/16/32 bits per component"

But I am not clear what is different (if both are converting to 8-bit?).

Currently it's the same as XnView classic, but in a future version

Ah, good!

I was just not getting the future development aspect.....so thought I was misunderstanding something.

Thank you,

The solution is to load the 48 bit TIFF into Iris and then save it again, as a 48bit TIFF. The image now loads into Capture NX!
Your suggestion resolved a chronic "missing link" in my work flow.

I'm also interested in this. Currently, converting 16bit files into 8bit ones is pointless (at least in my case) since all such images that I open turn out completely black in XnView. It seems that it needs proper 16bit support. Am I missing something?

EDIT: I'm talking about XnView classic, not MP. Sorry.

Keep up the good work! XnView is fantastic otherwise.

currently only NConvert can load/write in 16bits
