MP 0.39 : write BMP or PDF in Black & White

Post by jeanmi » Fri Oct 07, 2011 11:55 am

I want to save an image (JPEG file) in a PDF format but the generated PDF file is always in black & white : the colour disappeared in the PDF file.

It is the same when saving as a BMP file.

I tried with XnView MP 0.39 beta on Windows and on Linux.

What is the problem ?

Thank you for the quick answer.

Do you know when this issue will be corrected (essentially for PDF file) ?

I can confirm that it does happen for bitmaps. I was trying to batch convert some BMP images (reducing color depth) and they all resulted in grayscale. At first I thought it was an error in the batch convert but then I saw that it happened only when saving BMP images, not with JPG images.

While I was on the batch convert page I was wondering if, when reducing color depth, there is a way to force the use of the same palette for all images.
