Bitmap converter for OSX

Post by krummrey » Mon Mar 17, 2014 10:00 pm

Hi,

I'm on a Mac so I can't use Brad's VisualBasic converter. And the online-converter from Tedder (http://tedder.me/digipixel-creator/) gave me all zeros using a PNG written by Photoshop.

Does anyone have a working solution for Macs?

Jan

Hi jan, sorry to hear that the online converter is not working for you. I will have a look at it and see what the problem is. To help me out, could you please post your graphic you were trying it with here so I can see what the problem is?

Everything I've thrown at it in Safari results in all zeros. Chrome on the other hand gave me values. krummrey it may be worth trying it out in a different browser.

I just tried this test image:
dicenumbers.PNG
dicenumbers.PNG (251 Bytes) Viewed 6787 times
And it gave me all zeros. I then refreshed the page, opened the image again and it worked.

So I guess as an interim fix try this:

:arrow: Open the graphic converter webpage - http://tedder.me/digipixel-creator/
:arrow: Open your file
:arrow: Refresh the browser window / tab
:arrow: Open the file again and now it should give you your data.

Please let me know if this doesn't work for you.

It works in Chrome! Safari and Firefox give me all zeros.

Glad to hear it is working at least in Chrome. Did you get to try safari with the refresh option?

Be sure to let me know if you include a flappypixel splash screen :)
