[Digikam-users] digiKam and floating point tiffs and openexr files

Krita, GIMP 2.0/2.10, Blender, the raw processors darktable and 
PhotoFlow, and also other image editing software have the capacity to 
open and save 32-bit floating point tiffs and/or openexr files.

I've accumulated a lot of such files in the course of editing images, to 
the point where I'd like to find an image viewer for browsing through 
the images and then opening selected images with various high bit depth 
image editing programs.

As far as I can tell, digiKam can't read floating point tiffs and also 
can't read openexr files. Would filing a bug report/enhancement request 
be worthwhile?

It would be nice if digiKam could be used to not only view but also 
catalog and tag such images.

It would be extremely nice if digiKam could also be used to catalog and 
tag high bit depth GIMP XCF files and also Krita KRA files.
