I should have been more specific. :)

How do I do those things with Trinity apps? Considering all the Trinity graphics apps I would have thought that learning image information should be trivial. Thus far the only stat I have learned is size. Nothing about color depth, etc.

A quick check shows that ImageMagick provides some of that information, but let's get back to Trinity. :)

Considering that throughout Linux-dom icons are packaged as hicolor and locolor, I would have thought that within a link or two I would discover the criteria or definition of those terms. I'm still looking....
