Need help sizing a picture for a kenwood navigation radio

Click for full size
I have a Kenwood DNX890Hd navigation radio that would like to change the startup back ground screen.
The instructions are the following.
Image formatting information
1) File Type needs to be Bit Map
2) Pixel Size should be 800 * 480, but you need to first set to 921 * 480
3) Picture does need to be crushed during finalization, from 921*480 to 800 *480, as it will get expanded when loaded
4) You need to use a dedicated image processing application such as Photoshop in order to be able to make the right settings and save in the correct format.
5) Save as 16 bit Full Color BMP and the setting of RGB of R5,G6,B5 is very important
6) Windows Applications like Paint cannot be used to make the BMP as the settings for the RGB and picture crushing cannot be done with that application.

I have paintshop version 7.0 (yes I know it is old but I havn't used pantshop in 8 years.)but I am having trouble with some of the instructions. No 1 is the setting of the rgb. I do not have a setting for R5,G6,B5. I do have rgb setting but it has a scale 0 to 100 for red, green and red. Does r5, g6 and b5 mean red should be set at 5, green at 6 and blue set at 5?
No 2 what does mean and how is it done
2) Pixel Size should be 800 * 480, but you need to first set to 921 * 480
3) Picture does need to be crushed during finalization, from 921*480 to 800 *480, as it will get expanded when loaded
no 3. I have tried to set but when i got save I can only save as tiff, raw psd picture. There no setting for bmp.
If some would do this for me I will pay you for the trouble

Is this what you meant? I don't think it would look good with a completely black back ground.

I meant just the black background on the plate but that looks good as it is. Thanks

Loyalty is a very honorable trait but you should use what suits your taste. As I already mentioned to you in the PM, I think the one with no plate looks best but it's a matter of taste.

I had a '69 Chevelle in the early '80s. I've been a Chevy man ever since. Maybe one day I will have a new Camaro SS ZL1?

I used the SS. It fit perfectly at 800x480. Did you just make it 800x480, 16 bit R5,G6,B5 bmp. Did you use the 921x480 in the process.

I made the last two 800 X 480 16-bit R5,G6,B5 color format.

Oops, I just replaced the SS BMP above. Did you notice the SS emblem was a little high?

Yep but I am not complaining. So you do not need he directions about the 921x480 then. I am just wanted to so I can let Camaro5 people know.

If you were able to get it working with 800 X 480, I think someone misprinted the instructions that you were given at first?

Although I saw those same exact instructions in the Kenwood forums.

Once they was 800x480 they fit perfectly and clear. You even can read the SS. I did not get the instructions from the Kenwood forms but I guess where I got them from got them from the Kenwood forms.
I got every thing changed over. It looks better then the kenwood screen
