Subject: Re: Problem with gray scale bitmap
In reply to: Michel 's message, "Re: Problem with gray scale bitmap" on 17:15:20 10/12/05 Wed

Hello Michel,

I have checked this and ImageFormat is ifColor256.

My question is, ImageLib canīt make difference from a 256 color image to a 256 gray level?

If itīs true, how can i open a gray level image to save as JPEG without need to make a FormatTransfor or a ConvertToGray?

I ask this becouse i will need some speed on this action, and on my tests this option take much more time that i have to spent on this task(convert from BMP to JPEG).

Thanks in Advance
Roberto Augusto
