Lino thanks for you answer, you are right, I saw this in handbook:
"1"1-bit bilevel, stored with the leftmost pixel in the most significant
bit. 0 means black, 1 means white.
I have been testing, and on saving the image on the hard disk, it stores
with a bit per pixel, but loaded in memory use a byte per pixel.
if the image is black/white with bmp format, should not work PIL only with a
bit per pixel in memory?
