Hi all,

Just installed gimp-2.0pre1 ;)

I've scanned some jpeg images with a 24bit depth. Some of them are old
photographies in black&white that show 'bands' when are displayed on
a 16 bit depth display. After digging in the menus i noticed that the
image could be transformed to a indexed pallete, with a Floyd-Steinberg
dithering, but that did not solve nothing, the maximum number of colors
cannot be set to more that 256 :-/. Is there another way to dither an
image in gimp? Programs like gqview, an image viewer, use the dither
algorithms bundled with gdx_pixbuf in gtk2, and they work perfectly with
the same images. Why cannot the gimp do the same quality dithering if
it's using the same library?
