Editing a Bitmap, while keeping it's color-depth & colors ?

Hello All,

I would like to be able to edit a .BMP-file, while retaining it's
color-depth & colors.

Actually, I want to cut small pieces outof one .BMP, and store it into
another one. Jup, sort of a tile-editor :-)

Does anyone have a small sample (or pointer to one) of howto :
1) Load & save a device-independant bitmap (DIB).
2) Create a Device-independant bitmap that has the color-depth/colors of
another DIB
3) BitBlit from one to the other (although I think I allready have an idea
how to do this :-)

I've allready looked in my snippets-bag & used google, but I can't say I
grasp what has to be done ... :-\

Regards,
Rudy Wieser
