I have looked on Google for how monochrome bitmaps are stored yet always came up with ones that do not load monochrome versions, does anyone have any that they could share?

Monochrome bitmaps can use just one bitplane alone, use one channel in an RGB file, or use all 3 channels together using a formula like "Y = 0.3*R + 0.59*G + 0.11*B". So basically there isn't one single approach to storage, usage, or formats.

How they're stored where? The answer is different depending on whether you mean in memory, in a file, what OS and/or graphics library you're using, etc.
