The BMP loader from the book will load in bimaps created in Photoshop as long as you save them with in the BMP format. Just click on the file extension popup in the save dialog and scroll until you find the BMP extension.

Also, the loader supports 8-bit, 16-bit, and 24-bit BMP's. It does scale the 24-bit images down to 16 bits. But since you're a newbie, as you say, I would recommend working in 8 or 16-bit mode anyway. You have all the information you need there in the book.

Lamothe's new book covers all 4 bit depths. Check it out if you get a chance, Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus.
