I tried to convert 256 colored bitmap to monochrom bitmap.
I used the SetBkColor to set which color goes to white,
but in the result, more colors went to white, not only the specified in the SetBkColor.
Thanks.

There are some ways. What do you want to convert - file, bitmap object (HBITMAP), device-independed bitmap (DIBSECTION) ?

Have a look at
http://www.codeguru.com/bitmap/index.shtml

This has code to alter the bitmap palette to make it grayscale

Hi, i send you main Programm, that create palette
for Transformation, but function YouCondition: you choice:
you must decide, wich color must goto BLACK, wich: to WHITE:
..
HANDLE hImage = LoadImage (NULL, ofn.lpstrFile, IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0,
            LR_LOADFROMFILE | LR_CREATEDIBSECTION);
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Palette generation routines and helpers

HPALETTE CreateExactPalette (HANDLE hImage)
{
    DIBSECTION ds;
    UINT nColors, i;
    RGBQUAD* prgb;
    LOGPALETTE* plp;
    HDC hdc, hdcMem;
    HBITMAP hOldBitmap;
    HPALETTE hPalette;
    DWORD dwSize;

    // Get the number of colors in the image
    GetObject (hImage, sizeof (ds), &ds);
    if (ds.dsBmih.biClrUsed != 0)
        nColors = ds.dsBmih.biClrUsed;
    else
        nColors = 1 << ds.dsBmih.biBitCount;

    if (nColors > 256) // Sanity check
        return NULL;

    // Retrieve the image's color table
    if ((prgb = (RGBQUAD*) HeapAlloc (GetProcessHeap (), 0,
        nColors * sizeof (RGBQUAD))) == NULL)
        return NULL;

    hdc = GetDC (NULL);
    hdcMem = CreateCompatibleDC (hdc);
    hOldBitmap = SelectObject (hdcMem, hImage);
    nColors = min (nColors, GetDIBColorTable (hdcMem, 0, nColors, prgb));
    SelectObject (hdcMem, hOldBitmap);
    DeleteDC (hdcMem);
    ReleaseDC (NULL, hdc);

    if (nColors == 0) { // Another sanity check
        HeapFree (GetProcessHeap (), 0, prgb);
        return NULL;
    }

    // Create a logical palette from the colors in the color table
    dwSize = sizeof (LOGPALETTE) + ((nColors - 1) * sizeof (PALETTEENTRY));
    if ((plp = (LOGPALETTE*) HeapAlloc (GetProcessHeap (), 0,
        dwSize)) == NULL) {
        HeapFree (GetProcessHeap (), 0, prgb);
        return NULL;
    }

    plp->palVersion = 0x300;
    plp->palNumEntries = (WORD) nColors;
                  //it is main place!!!!!
    for (i=0; i<nColors; i++) {
       if (YouConditon(prgb[i])
         prgb[i].rgbRed = prgb[i].rgbGreen = prgb[i].rgbBlue = 255;
       else
         prgb[i].rgbRed = prgb[i].rgbGreen = prgb[i].rgbBlue = 0;
    }

    for (i=0; i<nColors; i++) {
        plp->palPalEntry[i].peRed   = prgb[i].rgbRed;
        plp->palPalEntry[i].peGreen = prgb[i].rgbGreen;
        plp->palPalEntry[i].peBlue  = prgb[i].rgbBlue;
        plp->palPalEntry[i].peFlags = 0;
    }

    hPalette = CreatePalette (plp);

    HeapFree (GetProcessHeap (), 0, plp);
    HeapFree (GetProcessHeap (), 0, prgb);
    return hPalette;
}
.
After that you must Realize and Actice Palette as

void DisplayDIBSection (HDC hdc, HANDLE hImage, HPALETTE hPalette)
{
    HDC hdcMem;
    HBITMAP hOldBitmap;
    DIBSECTION ds;
    int cx, cy;

    hdcMem = CreateCompatibleDC (hdc);
    if (hPalette != NULL) {
        SelectPalette (hdcMem, hPalette, FALSE);
        RealizePalette (hdcMem);
        SelectPalette (hdc, hPalette, FALSE);
        RealizePalette (hdc);
    }

    GetObject (g_hImage, sizeof (ds), &ds);
    cx = ds.dsBmih.biWidth;
    cy = ds.dsBmih.biHeight;

    hOldBitmap = SelectObject (hdcMem, hImage);
    BitBlt (hdc, 0, 0, cx, cy, hdcMem, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);

    SelectObject (hdcMem, hOldBitmap);
    DeleteDC (hdcMem);
}
Regards, Alex
