    The trouble is GIMP still can't handle 16 bit images.

    RAW captures are 16 bit images, after conversion.

    It will always be 8 bits if you save as jpg...that is so for photoshop...biút if you save as tiff it will be 16 bits in time...

    Yep JPEG is 8-bit color depth only. So most prints and all web posted images are 8-bit.

    There are advantages to doing your editing in 16-bit though and until GIMP can handle 16-bit depth images that advantage is lost on GIMP users.

    It's free, so no one should expect it to have the same capabilities as Photoshop.
