Investigate using non-custom type for BufferedImages

Right now, Bio-Formats always constructs BufferedImages with the type set to BufferedImage.TYPE_CUSTOM. However, working with BufferedImages of type TYPE_CUSTOM can be very slow. We should investigate constructing images with standard types (TYPE_BYTE_GRAY, TYPE_USHORT_GRAY, etc.) and only using TYPE_CUSTOM when absolutely necessary.
