What is RGB565?

A: The file format for splash screens. You probably want to create a 320x480 image. It is unsupported by any other image software, so the only way to create one is to start with a raw rgb888 file (8-bit raw, the default format in gimp or photoshop when saving as “raw image”) and run it through http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/build.git;a=tree;f=tools/rgb2565 to look at source.
