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 very 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 over the gimp with this plugin.

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

Like the 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.
