I want to import an image using Haxe, my image is big but it is 8 bits and it weighs 89kb. The problem occurs when I import it, because the size of the memory grows by 35mb. I suppose it is reserving memory for a 32bit image. Any idea how to import an image of 8bits, without consuming so much memory?

OpenFL currently uses 32-bit memory for images at runtime, regardless of the original compression format. I believe there is an enhancement task open right now to allow for 24-bit, 16-bit and other color formats.
