Are 16bit images with colormaps actually common? I have never supported them in my software and haven't encountered any in my various projects. Who has run into them? Is this an area we should be worried about handling efficiently?
FWIW, I've never seen one.
I expect that you will be able to see one today (CPU is crunching to generate the huge colormap). In the mean time, I am interested to know who is able to load and view the *beautiful* 4096 color (12-bits per sample) colormapped TIFF file I have made available at:
The current GraphicsMagick 1.2 development snapshot is able to read and write this file just fine.
