Hi,

Where can I find/create an RGB-565 picture (preferably size 352x240) ?
(I need specific "565 rgb" format - not just "rgb").

hewittq,
Thank you for the trouble, but I need
specific format: RGB-565.
I don't know what it means-
 (I'd be glad if you knew).

Take a look at:

and the image:

which uses '5' reds, '6' greens, and '5' blues.

The only thing I don't quite follow is -
how do I know that downloading the image
as *.jpg I'd get RGB565 ?
Does RGB565 has a specific name to the file
 (*.tif , *.gif , *.jpg , .... ).
 If I download your file as jpg , is it a conversion
 or the real RGB565 ?

 (I'm asking this because my knowledge in this
 field is very poor, please forgive me if it's not
 such a clever question.
I heard though of many types of images: YUV,RGB,RGB565,RGB888,Y-Cb-Cr,....).

You cannot know, unless you "dig" into the header of the JPG file; the author of the JPG file has chosen either 5-5-5 or 5-6-5 or .... when he/she created the JPG file.

This is from a good guy from a news group:
===================================
Hello!

===================================
They almost certainly aren't 565 images.  As I understand it, TIFF
technically allows you to set "BitsPerSample" to 5,6,5, but in practice
they're almost always 8,8,8.

I don't know of a format that popularly supports RGB-565 images.

>3) I once created YUV image in C++ (Simply wrote data to

This should be fairly easy.  RGB-565 pixels are each 16 bits in size.  The
ordering is:
"BBBBBGGGGGGRRRRR".  You might find this article useful:

If you have a 24-bit image and are converting to 5-6-5, for each color, you
first clip to the correct number of bits (5 for red or blue; 6 for green),
and then shift it left the correct number of places (11 for blue, 6 for
green, 0 for red).  (Some people like to round off to the correct number of
bits rather than truncating, but truncating is a bit easier and
significantly faster).

Your conversion loop would look a little like this (without optimization):

int i,j;
int lineWidth;     /* width of one line in pixels */
char *src, *dest;  /* src is 24-bit 888 B:G:R; dest is 16-bit 565 B:G:R*/

/* Not shown:  repeat these two loops for each line of the image */
for (i=0; i < lineWidth; ++i)
{
    for(j=0; j<lineWidth; ++j)
    {
        unsigned short * p = (unsigned short*)dest;
        *p  = ((unsigned short)*src) & 0xf8) << 11;   /* blue */
        ++src;
        *p  |= ((unsigned short)*src) & 0xfc) << 6;   /* green */
          ++src;
        *p |= ((unsigned short)*src) & 0xf8);         /* red */
        ++src;
        dest += 2;
    }
}
