||What pixel formats will SDE 9.0 accept for TIFF images? I am downloading images and saving them into TIFF formatted files, and I have various options for color depth and pixel format (e.g., RGB, ARGB, Indexed, etc).
I have done this succesfully in the past for grayscale images using an 8bppIndexed format. The sderaster command fails when I try 32bppRGB, saying "Unsupported pixel format". However, I am trying to construct a raster mosaic of mixed color and grayscale images, so if I use an 8bppIndexed format, all of the images get "munged" into a single common 256-color colormap, which results in good grayscale but ugly color portions of the mosaic.
The Indexed pixel formats are limited to 8 pits per pixel, so they won't be any use. I can't find in the documentation where the supported TIFF pixel formats are listed, only a single entry saying that TIFF is a supported format.
