    256 bitmap is bigger than 16bit bitmap

    hi all,

    I took a JPEG file of size 9KB, opened in MSPaint and saved as it in following formats

    format size on disk after save as
    --------------------------------------------------------
    24bit bitmap 108 KB
    16bit bitmap 16 KB
    256 colors bitmap 37 KB
    Monochrome 8KB

    according to me size of 16bit bitmap should be bigger than 256colors bitmap as 16bit format takes more bits per pixel but the results are revrse.

    why so ? If I am wrong plz let me know where I am making mistake ?

    hi all,

    I have got the point where I was wrong. Actually what I referred as 16bit format is 16colors (4bit format so obviously it will be less that 256 colors or 8bit format) infact.

    I am sorry for this silly mistake.
