Yes, I should have stated that better. I never had any colour data in
that range so I didn't really throw anything out. The problem occurs
when you map the 125 values that I had in the scan across a range of
0-255 you end up with a lot of gaps. With 16 bit scans, you have more
than enough colour data left to provide a smooth mapping.
