    when i open the edited .png file i get an error reading:
    "Png has to be 8bpp Indexed! This image will probably not work."
    I don't know what that means but i skip it and then try to write to .narc and then another error reading:
    "Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click
    Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.
    If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
    i click continue -> file -> write to .narc and the same thing happens over and over...
    I desperately need help

    i'm using PokeDSPic 'Platinum'

    8bpp = 256 color palette

    there should be a "Decrease color depth" option in your favorite image program, or use Irfanview, cuz it's free

    maybe someone more into pokemanz can help you more
