In this GIMP tutorial, I define and explain Image Precision, including the difference between 8-bit integer, 16-bit Integer, 32-bit Integer, 16-bit Floating Point, and 32-bit Floating Point image precision modes. I also get into Perceptual Gamma (sRGB) and Linear Light channel encoding modes. All of these options can be found under the Image Precision menu and allow you to more accurately edit your photos. By choosing the right image precision options, you’ll edit with a higher dynamic range, more precise colors, and with the best settings recommended by the GIMP team for the best final photos.

This is a very technical tutorial, but I attempted to break everything down in a way everyone (including myself) can understand.
