Colours-confusion

Postby Troken » Mon Dec 03, 2007 3:22 pm

Hi, I want to retranslate some strings for the next version. Help me define the following (nothing in the help-file):

In the menu "Image":
- "Convert to Colours" - this is indexed colour, right? For GIFs etc.
- "True colours" - a normal fullcolour image. How many colours?
- "32 bits" - this is what?

Hi Troken :)
  • “Convert to Colours” = Reduce color depth to 8-bit (256/128/64/32 colors) or 4-bit (16 colors) palette
  • “True Colour” = 24-bit truecolor (16,777,216 colors)
  • “32 bits” = 32-bit truecolor (24-bit + 8-bit alpha channel)
