PNG-8 Encoding in .net?

Last Modified: 2013-11-27
is it possible in vb.net or c# to save an image to PNG-8 (8-bits)?

when saving using to a png i noticed is always to 24 bits but the image still a bit too large if i save it jpg i may save some size but the quality is bad

i ask this because i noticed when saving an image on photoshop to png-8 the quality is about the same as the png-24 but file save is about a 1/3 of the 24 bits

Thank you
