Photoshop CS6 export to RGB 565 format
I googled this a bit and found an older post on the Adobe forums but that's for Photoshop CS3.
I was looking for the Advanced Mode option but couldn't find it. Is it still possible to save a bitmap in RGB 565 format from Photoshop CS6 (even with scripting) ? If so, how ?
First off, your image must be in RGB mode, then File > Save As...
Change the 'Format:' to
BMP (*.BMP;*.RLE;*.DIB) and click the Save button.
In the "BMP Options dialog the comes up, click the Advanced Modes button.
Voila! There is your R5 G8 B5 option.
