     The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how to build RGB pixels of varying bits per pixel (15, 16, 24, and 32) and it also shows how to RGB color components from an RGB pixel.

This article has accompanying files

This article demonstrates how to build RGB pixels using different bits per pixel (15, 16, 24, 32) and extract their RGB components. This is very handy when doing pixel manipulation, such as converting to grayscale, doing blurs, unsharp mask, etc.

I also uploaded the article to PSC and added some source code to demonstrate the topics of the tutorial. If there are any problems or inaccuracies in this tutorial, please let me know.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
