I do not get managed to save a 16/24-bit bitmap. There are no problems with 8-bit images but despite of all documentation I have read I was not able to save a 16/24-bit bitmap. I already know the Visual C++ article concerning this topic but somehow it does not work. Can anyone simply send a working sample of how to save a 16 or 24-bit bitmap ? I would be very thankful since I have tried to solve this problem for almost two weeks now.

What you need to do is create a Device Independent Bitmap (DIB) from your Bitmap and then save this to a file.  This way custom palette information is saved with the bitmap image.  Examples of how to create and save a DIB may be found at www.codeguru.com/bitmap.

In particular look at the the article by Jorge Lodos about the Encapsulated DIB API.  This class contains all the code necessary to load and save DIBS, create the DIB's palette and paint the DIB.  It can easily be extended to allow the DIB to be loaded from a resource contained within the application.
