white image, 4 BPP to assign 1 of 16 levels of grey to each pixel, or 8 BPP to assign 1 of 256 levels of grey to each
NOTE The digital scanner ignores these settings for JPEG file formats, which only support 8 BPP.
The digital scanner ignores 1 BPP for TIFF file formats, which only support 4 BPP and
8 BPP. 1 BPP is coerced to 4 BPP for TIFF file formats.
