I'm using 8bit images in my app. Once I loaded them with Ecolor16M and IInd time with Ecolor256.
Both time I got same number of cells allocated !!!
I think number of cells allocated in case of 256 must be very low as compared to 16M. As in case of 16M, at time of loading device will convert my images from 256 to 16M in memory.
or not .....
