Palette PNG to 24-bit PNG

Hi!
We have some problems using Palette (color-mapped) PNGs so I tried to automatically convert RGB 8-bit palette PNG to 3-channel 8-bit per channel PNG (TrueColor) with ImageMagick 7.0.8-12 Q16 x64 on Windows, but failing to do so:

magick.exe convert image-palette.png png24:image-truecolor.png

This still writes a palette-type PNG if I check with identify -verbose!

It reproduces here with this image:
Image


Does anyone know how to do this conversion? Is it a bug?

Identify reads the image, then tells you how it is stored in memory.

As you want to know how it is stored in the file, use exiftool.

Aaaaaah, no wonder I was confused. Exiftool worked like a charm, thanks for the tip!
