bmp 24-bit to 1-bit conversion
hi, thanks for replying.... although it wasn't the answer i was
looking for, i appreciate it. the original picture in wmf metafile
format is already in b/w, and then i use visual basic savepicture
to save it as bmp format. i then use a photo software to convert
that 24-bit bmp to 1-bit bmp, and then use that in my application
software. right now i'm looking for a way to make the conversion
fully automatic, without having to manually convert it using
an external software. non-programmers will be using the wmf-bmp
converter, so i can't keep it manual.
