Hi !

I have one 256 color bitmap on a picture box. I want to print some text on it and then save it in the same 256 color format.
I have to keep these palette. Using savepicture always change the bitmap palette to 24bit (monitor setup).

Thanks.

Hi !
I'm afraid you can't do that if you insist to use savepicture method. Ths only solution I can think off is used direct-x with vb and extract the bitmap from that 256 color file and then print some text on it. Then just convert them to 256 format again.
BTW, the convertion of 24bit to 256 were very complex.

I'm using  'savepicture picture1.image' to save changed bitmaps.

Unfortunately VB can't keep the palette.
