Hi Agus,
I guess my response is, no, I'm not positive. Images created using 
and printed on a 24-bit dye-sublimation printer are _definitedly_ more 
than 8-bit, but they could be something less than 24-bit. They _look_ 
like "true-color" to me, though. Are you sure that ghostscript is capable 
of displaying 24-bit, regardless of whether the PostScript image is?

I suppose I could look in the trusty PostScript reference manual to 
finish this debate... :-)
