10bit or 12bit image viewer


Hi,
Are there any image viewers that can show 10 bit and/or 12 bit images in '.tif' format. I have a CCD camera that saves 10/12 bit images. I am using Slackware 14.2 and use XFCE. Geeqie cannot render these images and I want to avoid converting these to 8 bit images for simple visualization.

Edit: I am looking for an image viewer, not image editor like GIMP as I would like to view multiple images without importing into the program.

Thanks

ImageJ might do the trick (https://imagej.net/Introduction).

gmic might ???

i work with spacecraft imaging and a lot of them use 12 bit ccd's ( older missions)
a indexed look up table is used to convert them to 16 bit

you could make them 32 bit float and do a matched pair stretch

"DS9" might be usable

The documentation for imagej only mentions 8 and 16 bit. ImageMagick will convert (with option -depth) and you could pipe the output to a viewer.
