It's usually either 5,5,5 or 5,6,5 - 5 bits for each of reg, green, and blue (with one left unused, or used for alpha), or 5 for each of red and blue and 6 for green. Let's not go into how much fun it is to manipulate such images on a processor that can't shift more than one bit at a time. Of course, 16 bis per pixel would give you a lovely monochrome image :-) John - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
