There seem to be no way to obtain the color depth info (32/24/8 bit) of an image being displayed. Is there plugin for that? If you have any recommendation for better image viewer that has such feature, feel free to post

They are not about EoG, but I found 1 way to get the information of color depth (or bit depth).

Using mediainfo comannd

mediainfo "image_file_name" | grep 'Bit depth'

It will be displayed as follows:

Bit depth     : 32 bits
