3 Basic questions
1. Does GIMP work with RAW (DNG)?
2. Can you use Topaz and Nik plugins?
3. Do the plugins work with 16bit image files?
Thank you,
D

Just tried the program and have answered my own questions. It's a no go for RAW and 16bit plugin work. Program is of no use for me at this point. Oh well.

Another option, Photivo, supports RAW import and 16bit.
http://photivo.org/photivo/start

It is possible to go from Gimp to Photivo for processing, then back to Gimp but then of course you lose the advantage of 16 bit.
So start off in Photivo then send to Gimp.

I did this for someone, don't think they even read it, such is life Wink

Using Gimp and Photivo in a Win7 64 bit machine.

Topaz plugins, special bundle offer at the moment, only $200 otherwise $300,
If you can afford Topaz plugins you can afford PS. However they are good plugins.
