 Convert To 24-bit Color

This function is used convert the current image into a 24-bits per pixel image (3 planes of 8-bits each for Red, Green, and Blue).

When the image source is monochrome, the monochrome data is copied into each color plane.  If the monochrome data is greater than 8 bits in depth, only the most significant 8 bits are used.  If it is a floating-point image, it is first internally converted to 8-bit gray.

When the image source is RGB 48, the most significant 8-bits are copied into the respective planes. 

This function does nothing if the image is already the correct type.

This function works on the current image.  The result is a new image.
