Setting the Number of Colors in Exported Images

The Mode setting controls the number of colors in exported images. The available modes depend on the format. For example, Intergraph RGB files must be 24-bit color, but PICT files can be 24-bit color, 256 colors, or grayscale.

Tip: Unless the image is used with a display that supports 24-bit color or is printed in color, using either 256 color or grayscale mode saves time and results in smaller image files with no loss of quality. This is especially true if the final output is monochrome.
