You don't. It's similar to trying to fit two gallons of milk into a one-gallon jug.

If you want to convert 16 bit to 8 bit you can open in like paint or something and save it a 8 bit(256 total will be used). To put in a game after I don't know.

That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

Only if your being an snobbish technophile. Pipesclangor is obviously talking about converting 16 bit picture images into an 8 bit imaget. Go to paint and save the 16 bit bmp file as 8 bit. Simple.

Now, putting it in a game is a different story. I am sure that there may be some bitmaps like images in certain 8 bit games. So i guess, replacing that data with a different file would be possible. How you would do that is a different story. I have no clue

I did alot of assuming. From the title I am thinking he has some kind of 16 bit image. My guess a bitmap. Then convert it to 8 bit and use some kind of utility to put it into a game? I don't know. But now I think about it it 8 bit is a bit much in a NES game. Should it be turned into 4 bit? More that I don't know.

simple solution
 
just throw the thing into http://www.stud.ntnu.no/~kenth/tm/Tile Molester</a>. it'll automatically convert it from whatever previous format into an 8-bit NES formated image. done and done.

You mean like this?

Well It's just a demo test of what you could do with a nes game, but the best results always come from self modding down to four colours then reinserting them. You do need to remeber that 1 all tiles are 16x16 and the bg sprites have 4 colours while character sprites have only 3, because fourth is for transparentcy. You also have to factor in Nes limitation though like only four palates per sprite type.

P.S. That's made useing a screen from SMB3, and converted graffics from SMAS:SMB3, SMW, and Actraiser. Although the animation would take alot longer it all could be done.
