try it on the original 28X64 digits. See if you get the same thing for 0.bmp as I did.

Doing that gives me the same output as you. So I guess the problem lies with how I'm resizing the images. I noticed that the un-resized images are 318 bytes, but when I resize them (make them smaller) in Photoshop and save them as bitmaps, they are 4 KB. Shouldn't they be smaller in size since I'm scaling them down?

Make sure Photoshop is saving them as true 1-bit per pixel bitmaps. If 24X54 images are coming out as 4K, then Photoshop is probably saving them as 24-bit color.
Notice that the originals are 26 X 64 = 1792 pixels. The only way to get that into 318 bytes is if you're only using 1 bit per pixel: 1792 / 8 = 224 bytes (plus file overhead)

Any idea how to do that in Photoshop? I can't find anything about that in Photoshop or on Google.

I don't have photoshop. But there will be some option someplace about bit depth (should be 1), or black-and-white (not grayscale). You should see these options on a Save As… or if you do an Export…

If you're running windows, just use paint.
