Bitmap files

I have written a function to read the data contained in 24bit bmp files, using visual basic 5.0 Professional. However when I use the RGB function in conjunction with PSet function, to display the colour to the screen, the colour displayed does not match that of the actual image.

(1) How do I get the two colors to match ?

(2) When I display the image it appears distorted, ie shifted diagonally to the right. How do I scale the points so that the image does not appear distorted ?

Thanks

1) Colors are displayed using palettes. You may have the right colors, just the wrong palette.

2) If you're getting diagonal tearing your loop index is off by +-1.
