i'm assuming dark gdk is the same as DBPro in that if you add the the texture flag ,1 when you load an image, it will "retain picture perfect quality". then, make sure you set your sprite's transparency on. so, (in dbpro):

LOAD IMAGE "space.bmp",ImgNum,1
...
SPRITE SprNum,XVal,YVal,ImgNum
...
SET SPRITE SprNum,1,1

if that doesn't work for you, it may be an issue with the .bmp file itself; most suggest using 24 bit .png files (removing the magenta (rgb(255,0,255)) and need for SET IMAGE COLORKEY all-together). if you're not using a ton of them (and not able to convert to .png yourself), zip 'em up and attach them here and i'll convert them for you.
