oops I guess the value order should be read a BGRA too

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

B = Hex(255 - Lsr(hImg[0, 0], 24) And &HFF, 2)
G = Hex(Lsr(hImg[0, 0], 16) And &HFF, 2)
R = Hex(Lsr(hImg[0, 0], 8) And &HFF, 2)
A = Hex(hImg[0, 0] And &HFF, 2)

Print a, r, G, B

I'll sit me back down, pretty sure you know what to do to convert anyway
now :)
