Hi Pierre-Jean,

>From the source code it looks like vtkBMPWriter writes out 24 bpp even if
you only have 8 bpp... you'll get three identical RGB channels. Why not try
a different format, vtkPNGReader/Writer for example... its lossless AFAIK

Hi, I want to write a 8 bits bitmap. I can only  write a 24 bits with
vtkBMPWriter. Can you help me?
I use vtkBMPReader ro read a 8 bits bitmap. Should I use vtkImageReader and
a lookup table; how?
I'm working in c++.
Thanks a lot.
