Cinepaint is an Open Source image editor developed for the movie industry specifically to support high dynamic range image editing.

Although originally based on the GIMP image editor (for a long time cinepaint was called Film Gimp), this application has since diverged significantly.

This project was not active in the last years.

Note that the Panorama GIMP plug-in doesn't yet support HDR or 16bit images, so there is no advantage using cinepaint with this plugin.

There is a thorough cinepaint tutorial on manipulating 16bit photos.

Like GIMP, Cinepaint needs to be tuned for memory usage when working with large images.

A useful Cinepaint plugin is Hartmut Sbosny's Bracketed exposures to HDR plugin for combining bracketed exposures.
