So can other apps get at all 12 or 14 bits per channel, or does everything get given a JPEG?

Thanks. I've never noticed working with JPEG files in image editors, they seem just to have linear 8bit per channel color, then add lossy compression. It's interesting that internally things are different.

Sorry, just after a little more info then I'll mark as correct, it's a good answer.

The discreet brightness (color) values of a JPEG image are not linearly spaced in brightness? I presume they are and the difference between the scales exists to make the image look correct as a photo. Also, can other apps not get the data more directly, or is this built in at a hardware or OS level to only provide an already constructed JPEG?
