    Convert to 8-bit before you save.

    Change the image mode to indexed color.

    But when I change back from Index mode to RGB Mode, it turns to Black and White

    PS version? I have 7. Is the original RGB?
    Go to IMAGE > MODE > 8bit. It probably has got a tick in front of 16bit now.

    Rob,

    You cannot save a 16-bit/channel as BMP at all....


    Ashish,

    Mode>Indexed colour>256 colours>Local Selective.

    DO NOT CHANGE BACK TO RGB MODE

    Save As BMP>8bit
