Hmm, thanks. Your answer tracks to my guess about what's going on but I'm not
sure what I can do about it. All the original images are 24bpp but none of my
image programs (Photoshop, Photopaint) will save an image at 16bpp, I can either
have 24 or 8. What image format supports a native 16bpp image? Would the image
program have to understand a particular 16 bit color space?
