CinePaint is a deep paint image retouching tool that supports higher color fidelity than ordinary painting tools available for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows.

  • Support for 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit color channels of deep paint.
  • High fidelity image file types such as DPX, OpenEXR and 16-bit TIFF.
  • High Dynamic Range.
  • Onion-skinning.
  • Flipbook. Movie playback of short sequences of images in RAM.
  • Color Management System. CinePaint uses LittleCMS.
  • Gallery-quality printing. B&W photographs have only one color channel and degrade quickly when manipulated as 8-bit images. CinePaint has higher fidelity and offers a 16-bit printing path to the print-head using GutenPrint.
