What is required is a left shift of 5 places which is equivalent to multiplication by 65536/2048=32.

MinSampleValue and MaxSampleValue are intended to record the actual min and max pixel values in the image to save the reader having to scan the image itself.

I have no intention of hijacking them for other purposes.
