I am stuck on a similar problem. That's why I joined this list ;)
I want to display an 8-bit gray scale image stored in an array,
Damn that slow color allocation, huh? As a last resort, I tried what
you did, and it was slow as hell :)

It would be nice if you could specifically tell me which lines of
imlib code to look into. Reverse engineering is a time comsuming
process, you know :)

Also, related to slow color allocation, how would you display many
lines of various colors as fast as possible?
