Here's my custom Workbench 2.0 running on my Rejuvenated A1000 from around 1990-91. All the icons were hand made.

It looks a bit odd here because this is a printout from the screen onto a Canon PJ1080A. It's all I have left... (Don't put a lot of trust in MFM Hard Drives)

Aaah yes I remember that now. The comments on your video are interesting... Did you ever look into the "fully dissasembled" code ?

May be a dumb question, but how could I convert any picture into 16 colours, so that it will work with my system shown in my sig without a too big delay while booting the system?

Most graphics software can do that for you. If you do it on the Amiga for example Personal Paint does a good job at dithering an image to only a few colours.

I use http://aminet.net/package/gfx/conv/gfxcon alot on my low-spec amiga (A1200 030 8mb) for converting images (usually jpeg images to floyd-steinberg dithered 16-color iff pics). Should work on a 68k ECS/OCS system as well. Lots of internal strings in German, though. (shouldn't be a problem if your profile location is accurate, though )

I think I did not ask in a correct way, so it looks like that my meaning was misunderstood. Sorry for my bad english...

What I wanted to do is to convert a "normal" picture on my windows system into a 16 color picture, to use it as backdrop for my Amiga System.
So I need a converter for windows and not for Amiga itself.

Because afaik as more colours are used for a backdrop as slower the machine is booting, right?

Maybe if someone might suggest to me what would be the best parameters to convert a pic. to use it as an Amiga backdrop. (size and resolution)?

Many thanks in advance!

I understood what you meant, but you can load any kind of images (PNG, JPEG and so on) into Personal Paint for conversion, then save out as a (for example) 16 colour IFF-ILBM image.

On the PC side I usually use Paint Shop Pro to first resize an image to a suitable resolution (depends on your screenmode settings but 704x288 should fit a PAL screen nicely even if fully overscanned) and then further reduce the colours in Personal Paint. Any image manipulation program will do just fine (GIMP, Photoshop etc.)

For the final image 8-64 colours is probably the range you should be looking at, again depending on your screenmode settings.

This is my CWB39 using the DOpus Magellan of Amikit, and 16 colors only.



I don't understand why to use a wallpaper with a dragon or such things while you can have Jessica Alba in your miggy...
