I've always had that weird and pointless thing about taking random pictures and saving them in microsoft's most restrictive formats. This is the first SRoMG strip saved in every bitmap format available by default on Windows 7, from top to bottom : 24 bits (no visible change from PNG as far as I can tell), 256 colours, 16 colours, and monochrome. I thought about doing it to more strips, but it ended up taking up too much space for the same result anyway.

Original strip: 2008-11-05.
