    Programs for Deep Painting Ubuntu 13.04

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a program with Deep Painting capabilities that will run on Ubuntu 13.04.

    So far the only one I've found is Cinepaint, but it really doesn't run well on debian systems (so I've been told... I tried downloading/building the tar.bz with errors and wasn't able to get it to run, also tried downloading the RPM/convert to deb with alien and then installing... could not open any files)

    I've heard of Gimp Paint, but apparently it does not apply anymore, and Glasgow (?)...

    So, if anyone knows of any other alternatives, I'd be grateful...

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Do you know if mypaint allows you to use 16 and 32 bit color space?

    And do you know what file formats it can import... Most of my photgraphs are .jpg or .png?

    You might be best to ask those questions on the mypaint forum...

    From mypaint basic usage tutorial....http://mypaint.intilinux.com/?page_id=3

    Saving and exporting your work
    MyPaint can save/load images as PNG, JPG and ORA (OpenRaster, an evolving standard in the open source world).
    Save in ORA when you want to pause your work and continue in MyPaint later, it is the only format which also stores your layer structure.

    To allow GIMP to load ORA files you need to install GIMP’s ORA plugin. You can find it here. If you have no layers in your MyPaint image you can instead use PNG to export to GIMP directly. For best quality, stick with ORA and/or PNG. Avoid JPG until you want to publish your finished image on the web.
    The Save Next Scrap feature of MyPaint (shortcut F2) saves a “scrap” of your work with an ever increasing numbering (settable in preferences). It is useful for quickly experimenting with different concepts and ideas.

    GIMP works with 16-bit and 32-bit per channel images now. Not sure if it has all of the features you need though. There's also CinePaint which I think was a fork of GIMP back when GIMP supported only 8-bit per channel images.
