Hello Bob,

Simulated image of 16300x27501 pixels, bilevel:


* plain reading/writing (no bit-manipulation): 0.294 sec
 using bit-shift operator ("<<" resp. ">>"):  1.920 sec *
 using lookup-table:                          0.380 sec*

I think this is true for images beyond a specific size (number of pixels).

When working with large images, i don't think any algorithm could beat this.
