Allow fewer PNG palette entries than the bit depth maximum when saving #5330

merged 1 commit into from Mar 21, 2021

Resolves #2202

Currently when saving a PNG in P mode, Pillow sets the number of bytes in the palette at two to the power of the bit depth, times 3 for the colors.

if im.mode == "P":
palette_byte_number = (2 ** bits) * 3
palette_bytes ="RGB")[:palette_byte_number]

As pointed out in the issue, states that

It is permissible to have fewer entries than the bit depth would allow.

So this PR changes palette_byte_number to the number of colors times 3 instead.

The length of the tRNS chunk is also changed, as

The tRNS chunk shall not contain more alpha values than there are palette entries
