Picture get depth color

Hello All,

I try to get the depth color of picture class before send to imageWell.
But if the image is 1 bit (b&w) or 8 bits (256 colors) the value of picture.depth is allway 32.

Why ? another solution ?

Best Regards

Xojo pictures currently are always 32bit.

Thanks to reply Christian.

I think we do have functions to count number of colors.
