If you want to, say, take a 24-bit or 32-bit and treat it as an
8-bit image, you'll probably want to actually do a conversion
rather than a simulation. In which case you'd probably be better
off just using an existing C library like FreeImage. You can find
a binding here:
Otherwise, you'll want to hit up a graphics programming forum for
resources on image conversion. Two possibilities:
