Any ideas about what is wrong? i looked at CGBitmapContextCreate's
docs here, but they say that it supports 32-bits images with 8 bits
per channel: CGImage/Reference/reference.html#//apple_ref/doc/c_ref/CGBitmapInfo

That just lists possible values for CGBitmapInfo. You should check out <>. It lists the only legal combinations of bitsPerComponent, colorspace and bitmapInfo that CGBitmapContextCreate supports. It is a fairly limited set and any other combinations cause CGBitmapContextCreate to fail.
