I finally got around to trying your suggestions regarding changing an
image file's color depth. I'm not sure what the syntax is. Here's the
exact line of code:
export img myImage to file myFilePath as png
I've tried inserting "as raw" or even just "raw" just about everywhere I
can imagine in that command and I always come up with errors.
Your other suggestions are working out really well. I'm especially
having fun 'exporting with palette'
