After reading about pixel art here and there, many seems to use GraphicsGale, so i
downloaded the free version.. but even with 24bit colors in the image, i cant make grey color..

One would assume i pick black and then adjust the brightness of the selected color and show in the pic, but no, it still pitch black color even if i set it to max brigthness.. Wierd program

I believe the first bar is alpha (transparency), not brightness.  Try HSL if you prefer the hue/saturation/brightness setup.

nope the first bar is light
Double click a color then chose gray then press again on the same color to use it.

RGB is gross, use HSL.

So when you guys import your pixel art into your games, how do you do it? I noticed that my test pixel art looked fine in flash but total shit in the iPhone simulator...
