Re: [Gimp-developer] 32 bit bmp files again

To add again, The file that Paint saved, that it says is '24-bit' (but it
IS 20K in size like Gimp's 32 bit version) works, as a 32 bit file.  So the
trick is to figure out what Gimp did that produces bad 32 bit .bmp files.
Now I need to test the file that was output from Paint, and see if the
alpha channel is preserved.  Thanks for putting up with me.  Todd.

To add to my question thread myself; I can load the file into Paint, but
if I try to save it, Paint says '24 bit' only (has no 32 bit option) and if
I save that, it's the same size.  If I save from Gimp to 24 bit it's 15K.
 If I save from Gimp to 32 bit it's 20K.  so whan I save in Paint, and it
says '24 bit' it saves to 20 K file.

I know this is an old topic but I am having trouble, producing 24 bit

not good. (to save 32 bit pixel image) Windows API simply will not load the
file. I've tried changing 'save colorspace information' and this does not
Any fix? I guess I have to try a different program.  Don't need any
special functionality, just a 32 bit file that the windows api can load.
