I think i figured it out..
I noticed the warning on the wiki Color page..
http://gambaswiki.org/wiki/comp/gb.qt4/color

In Gambas, the alpha color component is inverted in comparison to standard
color coding. In other words, an alpha component of zero is fully opaque,
and an alpha component of 255 is fully transparent

So I used this code that converts to hex values...

Public Sub Form_Open()

Dim hImg As New Image(1, 1, Color.red)

Dim aInt As Integer[]

Print "red = "; Color.Red
aInt = hImg.Pixels

Print aInt[0]
Print hImg[0, 0]

Dim A, R, G, B As String

A = Hex(Lsr(aInt[0], 24) And &HFF, 2)
R = Hex(Lsr(aInt[0], 16) And &HFF, 2)
G = Hex(Lsr(aInt[0], 8) And &HFF, 2)
B = Hex(aInt[0] And &HFF, 2)
Print A, R, G, B

A = Hex(255 - Lsr(hImg[0, 0], 24) And &HFF, 2)  ' Note this line uses 255-
as wiki says Alpha values in gambas are reversed
R = Hex(Lsr(hImg[0, 0], 16) And &HFF, 2)
G = Hex(Lsr(hImg[0, 0], 8) And &HFF, 2)
B = Hex(hImg[0, 0] And &HFF, 2)

Print A, R, G, B

End

results..
red = 16711680
-65536
16711680
FF      FF      00      00
FF      FF      00      00

Note for the Image[n,n] array i use 255- on the alpha value to reverse it.
It seems the Pixels[] array does not reverse the alpha value but the
Image[] array does

I have no idea how to convert the 1st 32bit alpha part as a color integers
all i have is that Hex conversion but i think i found the problem.
