Program uses 32 bpp when it only needs 8


Program stores thumbnail images in RGBA format when it only needs a greyscale (Y) channel. There's some code in place to convert to a greyscale image, but it isn't called. This would be a 75% improvement in the algorithm's run speed/reduce memory/etc. Look into it.

Fixed--we now discard all values but the single gray scale value. Resulted in about a 15x improvement in computation speed, since the Levenshtein algorithm is O(n^2), and n went from 1024 to 256. (basically, about 1000k computations to 65k computations for that data set)
