Gimp...16 bit color mode


Im trying to create some images in Gimp but they need to be in 16 bit color mode. Images I create always default to 24 bit color mode. Anyone know how to edit/create images in 16 bit color mode?

Thanks!!

If you are talking about .bmps then there is no such thing as 16bit color. What images are you trying to save in 16bit color, and why?
