That sounds unlikely. Iyonix !Paint cannot display CMYK sprites. Paint 
displays it as if it was an RGB sprite.

So, if the sprite in question really is a CMYK sprite, then ArtWorks 
displays it correctly while Paint will not.

If you see it correctly in Paint then maybe the sprite really is a 16M 
colour RGB sprite that just happens to claim it is CMYK.

So, maybe that is what it is?
