just got a pronto 6000 and trying to ease my way into using it.
| Only editor I have is Photoshop. After doing my first edit and trying to load into ProntoEdit, I got a mesage from ProntoEdit saying it has to be an 8 bit image. Photoshop wont let me save an 8 bit bmp (there is a radio selection that lists 8 bit, but it is greyed out and after a couple hours of googling, cant find a way to get it to work).
Any open source (i.e. free) edit tools to do this 8 bit task - or does anybody know of how to get Photoshop to output 8 bit?
Go to the image drop down in PS and select mode, set mode to indexed color and you will be able to save a .BMP file as 8bit.
