Hello,

 

I am working on Photoshop CS3 with 24 bits Bitmap files.

I would like to know how to convert a 24 bits Bitmap files to 565 RGB files.

    A Google search of "565 RGB conversion" produces 273 hits, so perhaps you are not talking nonsense and this is a serious question. Can you be a little bit more specific?

    so basically what you want is to get a smaller file? well then you should use File->Save for Web&Devices and save as a jpg or png-8 as the bmp file format tends to make huge files. If you have to save to the .bmp file format then when saving the file, click on Advanced Modes in the BMP Options dialog box and chose R5 G6 R5

    I am still using BMP 565 for a client, though I'd rather use PNGs. Some clients don't want to go near any format that has intellectual property issues, though I'd love to know if anyone is being sued for using a PNG or a JPEG these days. Unfortunately there is no support for BMPs in Save For Web.

     

    I can't remember with CS3, so it might not be an option, but with CS4 and CS5, here's what you do:

     

    1. Save As...

    2. Select BMP format in the Save As... dialog box

    3. It should give you a list of normal formats, plus a button for "Advanced Modes"

    4. Pick "R5, G6, B5" mode

    5. Click OK and you're done

    function(){return A.apply(null,[this].concat($A(arguments)))}
