 Convert To 48-bit Color

This function is used convert the current image into a 48-bits per pixel image (3 planes of 16-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 less than 16 bits in depth, the data is bit promoted with zeros used for the least significant data.  If it is a floating-point image, it is first internally converted to 16-bit gray.

When the image source is RGB 24, the data is copied into the respective planes with bit promotion and zeros used for the least significant bits. 

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.
