I am trying to create an application that will show only 256 color bitmaps. I need help in finding code or libraries that will do that for me.
Can someone help me?

If you have MSDN, search for bitmap quantization and you should come up with an article in MSJ Aug 96 by Jeff Prosise. This code does exactly that.

If you don't have MSDN, go to www.microsoft.com/MSJ and download the code for that issue.
