# What happens if you have an image that has 6 bits per pixel?

## What happens if you have an image that has 6 bits per pixel?

What happens if you have you an image that has 6 bits-per-pixel and you change it to 12? You will see a variety of different colors in the image, and the image will look scrambled.

### What is 6 bit color?

6-bit RGB. Systems with a 6-bit RGB palette use 2 bits for each of the red, green, and blue color components. This results in a (22)3 = 43 = 64-color palette as follows: 6-bit RGB systems include the following: Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) for IBM PC/AT (only 16 colors can be displayed simultaneously)

#### How many colors can 6 bits represent?

64 colors
Number of different colors:

Bits per pixel Number of colors
6 bpp 64 colors
7 bpp 128 colors
8 bpp 256 colors
10 bpp 1024 colors

What are 32 bit images?

Remember, 8 bit, 16 bit, and 32 bit images are NUMBER OF BITS PER CHANNEL! There are basically 3 channels in an RGB image, so that’s like 24 bit, 48 bit, 96 bit respectively. 32 bit often refers to 24 bit, though 32 bit is actually 8 bits per channel, with an extra “alpha” channel (for transparency).

How many pixels is 8 bit?

256
COMPARISON

Bits Per Pixel Number of Colors Available Common Name(s)
4 16 EGA
8 256 VGA
16 65536 XGA, High Color
24 16777216 SVGA, True Color

## Is 6 bit a depth?

If the colors are listed as 16.2 million or 16 million, understand that it uses a 6-bit per-color depth. If no color depths are listed, assume that monitors of 2 ms or faster will be 6-bit, and most that are 8 ms and slower panels are 8-bit.

### What is 6 bit depth?

The number of bits used to hold a screen pixel. True Color (24-bit color) is required for photorealistic images and video, and modern graphics cards support this bit depth. Per Pixel or Per Subpixel. The color depth of a screen can be referenced by the number of bits in each subpixel or by the total bits per pixel.

#### How many bits is a single pixel?

In a picture, a pixel can be defined by one to 36 or more bits. With one bit, there are two possible colors: black and white. With 36 bits, there are 68,719,476,736 possible colors. randrew1, Apr 17, 2010

How are pixels converted to bytes?

The number of bytes is equal to the number of pixels multiplied by the number of bytes per pixel. As we’ve already found how many pixels are in the image (480,000), and that there are 2 bytes of information in a pixel, the equation then becomes: 480,000 pixels multiplied by 2 bytes per pixel. This gives us a final answer of 960,000 bytes.

How many bits per pixel is the digital output?

Image must be in colour (24 bits per pixel) in RGB colour space, the common output for most digital cameras. The final frame size of the photo must be at least 35mm x 45mm. If you scan an existing photo, the minimum resolution must be 600 pixels per inch.

## How many bits for each pixel in true color format?

When all three primary colors are combined at each pixel, this allows for as many as 2 8*3 or 16,777,216 different colors, or “true color.” This is referred to as 24 bits per pixel since each pixel is composed of three 8-bit color channels.
