Exclamation Exporting Small 1-bit .pcx graphics
I am trying to export very small (490 x 121) 1-bit graphics out of GIMP as .pcx files. With my working .xcf pulled up, I go to Mode> Indexed and select "Use black and white (1-bit) palette" from the Indexed Color Conversion box. Then I export my graphic as a .pcx, but the graphic is not 1-bit, it is 8-bit, the file size is around 10k, instead of being around 3-4k like it should be.

If it helps, I am using GIMP 2.8.0 on a Windows XP box. I've attached my .xcf for reference.

Hope some smart folks out there can help out.


Attached File(s)
.xcf  working.xcf (Size: 18.33 KB / Downloads: 54)

If you want a GUI, XnView works.
