I am trying to do processing of 16 bit as well as 8 bit images . Can anyone mention if opencv takes only 8bit images for processing or will it take 16 bit images? Can you specify which all functions will take only 8 bit function

OpenCV works with many image types: single channel, multi channel, 8bit, 16bit, integral types and floating point types. Some functions work on some types but not others. Sometimes certain operations with certain types it don't make sense and sometimes support for certain functions on certain types has not yet been implemented. You will have to read through the documentation to see what functions support what types.
