    jpeg to 128x64 bitmap converter

    The compilers from mikroElektronika come with a couple of tools. One of them is a GLCD Bitmap Editor that can convert a bitmap file into a high level language piece of code (C, Basic or Pascal). Although they are not for MSC-51 family, you still can download, install, and use just the tool.

    Cheers,

    free download fastlcd

    I used the FastLCD program designed by MICRODESIGN. This is a simple and useful program. I used it to convert bmp files to .h code for both T6963C and KS0108 based 128x64 LCD. A good feature of FastLCD is that, you can select data arrangement in verticle manner for KS0108 or horizontal manner for T6963C. Highly recommended.

    where to download: http://www.fastavr.com/

    fastlcd free download

    Hi
    3 years ago I made a program in C that read the image saved as *.tiff. Then convert it to the raget MC code directly. All what I need then is to drag and drop this code.
    Also I made another function in assembly (at that time) that takes the address of upper left corner of the image on the LCD and the start address of the image data in the saved in the memory and the width and lengh of image on LCD. Then this function start to draw the image data rwa by raw.

    This way from my point of view was efficient and it helped me after that to draw what ever image I need in this project

    Thanks
    Haytham

    That is interesting. I am working on a board with a 1.8" color LCD. At this moment, I can only compile a bmp into *.c file of an int16 array, paste it or include it to the main.c to display that picture. My next step is to work on a decode software to display a bmp or any other pictures in PC format (tiff / jpeg?) that we can browse the images' file names and display it using a navigator switch.

    So, haytham, my question is: is your code for avr or pic or whatever mcu? is it free for sharing?
