I tried a program that compares groups of three, but all i got were sets of three that were staggered so that the last value of one set is the first value of the next and the last of that group is the first of the next ect. Please help.
It sounds like you have the right data, it's just a matter of interpreting it at this point. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you're attempting to consider only the values that are different. That's a fairly good assumption, and I'm sure a lot of us jumped to that conclusion at first, but that's not going to get you the answer. Instead, focus on how all the values of the pixels of interest differ from one another.
Here's an example to illustrate what I mean. If you have something like so...
- Code: Select all
0x44 0x45 0x45 0xa2 0xa2 0xa3 0x88 0x89 0x88
Your first thought may be to take 0x44, 0xa3, 0x89, and begin constructing your answer from that. That's not a bad assumption, but it's not the correct one in this case. Look closer. Consider the entire set of values. There's a logical pattern to which ones are different. Find that pattern, and you'll be at the final step. If you're having trouble seeing it, maybe it's because you're thinking in groups of three. Try grouping them differently, see if that helps.
