I see. My digital images from my Nikon D2X are 8 bits I assume. Not sure if there are any advantages to convert them to 16 bits.
Should I ?

While Qimage will print in 16 bits, it must receive in 16 bits otherwise there is no benefit.  Finding the blocking color with 256 patches 8-bit file would be OK.  What I meant was are processing the original image in 16-bits, like adding the correction curve layer, color fill layer, flip, invert etc.

Niranjan, yes i use 8 bits to find out the colorized color. i have 3 color density palette. red-green, red-blue and blue-green with 256 patches.
I have been experimenting with qimage to print. I think it processes everything in 16 bits if i am correct.
