[Feature Request] 2-bit BMP export

Post by sd_snatcher » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:42 am

Nowadays, XnConvert can read 2-bit BMP files (aka 4-color BMPs), which is great, but sadly it can't export BMP files in this color depth.

This makes it impossible to generate BMP files for the Windows CE.

Please implement support to export 2-bit BMP files.

My case is more specific. I have another software that takes this 2-bit BMP format as the input to generate another legacy image format. :)

It may sound weird, but I'm one of the contributors for the Retro gallery. This means we have to deal with a lot of legacy image formats in order to preserve them in their native files. Please pay a visit to see if you like the project.

It's funny how there were a lot of music preservation formats in native files (.AY, .MOD, .SPC), but nothing similar for images until now.
