We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I am trying to use processing to read in an image with 24 bit color. Then I want to reduce the color to 16 bit, compatible with an AdaFruit Hx tft display. But I just noticed that there appears to be no 16-bit data type that I can use for my 16-bit pixel colors. I suppose I can poke the colors into 2 bytes, but that is a bit more messy.
Is there, by chance, an undocumented 16-bit type. I've tried a few possibilities, with no luck.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
