In a message dated 99-02-15 15:26:43 EST, you write:
In Windows, one can save a bitmap to 256-colours (which, I'm pretty
sure, is the same as 8-bit). Is there anywhere--within Windows or on
the Net--where one can see the 256 colour palette that Windows uses?
I'm trying to solve an irritating and re-occurring screenshot issue.
If you're using a graphics program such as Paint Shop Pro, you can save a
palette of colors and apply it to any screen shot. I've used this very
successfully to make sure the colors are consistent in all my graphics.
