The toolbar can display picture with more than 16 colors (example, the
build-in picture 'Asterisk!')

How can I use my picture (bmp, gif, jpg, ...) with 256 colors in toolbars.
PB seems to decrease the picture to 16 colours and the result is worst than
if I had choose the 16 colours myself ...

I'm using PB 7

You'll need to wait an bit and then (hopefully) upgrade to PB11.
They're supposed to be working on a number of GUI improvements.

Try using ICO files instead.
This works (a little bit) better.
