Thanks, I'm not worried about the shading of grey, I'll just be using text. I was just worried about formats of the 256 vs 8bit, etc. I'll give it a try.

Go to sleep so you can do more magic tomorrow.......

Coming up with my own new screens can be my new project until I get my PP back. Both ekaser and the OP came up with some great ones.

Get the logomaker from its in ukranian but its easy enough to use
just select the reader you want v3 or v8 and then
select the two pics you want one for starting logo another for closing logo by pressing the folder icon
then press the black white logo beside that fixes the image for eink
it will save it for you.
Its only for v3 and v8 but it has a devices.ini file with it you can play around with it so it produces something with the correct size for your reader

Thanks, it worked GREAT I now have my personalize pictures in there.

I sent you some KARMA but my fingers flubbed so my message wasn't finished.

Bye the bye, my first try, my picture worked fine, but my text didn't show, I guess the greyscale was wrong for my text. So I put the text on a picture and it's great.

I STARTED A THREAD THAT WE CAN SHOW OFF OUR IMAGES. PLEASE, EVERYONE, POST YOUR IMAGES THERE.

Okay, okay, so I couldn't resist playing when I should be working (besides waking up at 5am...)

I've posted an update to V5LOGOS on my website at:This version (NUTS! Next time I get some time, I'll have to put a revision code in the program!) will handle 256-color and 24-bit color bitmaps as input and generate proper grayscale output files.

Now, REALLY, it's WORK time...

Excellent, now my opening and closing images work really well (the closing looks really nice, the opening way too dark, i need to upate it for another one), i really thank you

EDIT: Here is a custom logo that dont have any info, just unzip the file in the root of your SD card to see if you like it =D

EDIT2: Here are the boot/shutdown images i used

I started a thread we can show off our images, how about posting them there? If they are in JPEG the thumbnail will show without having to download them.

WOW!! ekaser got it and it works!!

The logo.bin and logo.md5 files are samples, pre-made from the enclosed sample startup.bmp and shutdown.bmp. The source files (for any programmers out there) are main.c, md5.c and md5.h. There are brief explanations/instructions in the readme.txt file, and the program itself is v5logos.exe. This is a command-line program that has to be run from a command-line prompt. Read the readme.txt file. Perhaps when I get a little more time (I should NOT have been doing THIS this morning!), I'll also convert it to a regular Windows program that prompts you for the input files.

Don't be worried by the disclaimer of warranty and placing all risk of use upon you. While those ARE true, I've extensively tested it on my own EZ-PEZ, and it works great.

Now go have some fun!

Dear ekaser:

I will have our head tech check your way out but I have seen the images on another thread showing the results!! I am astonished!! YOU are damned good!

Great work!!

Thanks, Robert! I know I'm 'damned', but I'm not sure about the 'good' part...

I love the idea of customizing the start-up and shut down screen of my PEZ, but I'm not very good with command-line programs. If it's not too much to ask, dear Ekaser, when you have the time, could you create a windows application for those like me (technically challenged people)? It would be a wonderful program and it would make my reading experience a lot more pleasant.
for all your work!
Great pictures, everyone, I saw some incredible screens in the "show us your customized screens" thread.

That's something I've thought about, and will almost certainly do at some point (if someone else doesn't beat me to it). It won't be immediately, as I have more pressing work requirements at the moment, but when I get some spare time, that is definitely on my "wish to do" list.

But don't let "command line" keep you from playing with this, it's really not that hard. Let's imagine that you download and unZIP V5LOGOS into the C:\books\tools\v5logos folder, and that you have a couple of bitmap images (.BMP files) in the C:\books\PEZ folder called "PEZ startup.BMP" and "PEZ shutdown.BMP" (just examples, and the quotes are just because there's a space in the file name). Then, you would:

1) Open a command-line window via the Start-Programs-Accessories-CommandLine menu.
2) Type (and press the ENTER key after each command):
cd \books\tools\v5logos
v5logos "\books\PEZ\PEZ startup.BMP" "\books\PEZ\PEZ shutdown.BMP"
exit
(There's a SPACE character after 'cd', 'v5logos' and between the two quoted file names after 'v5logos'.)

This will use the specified startup and shutdown .BMP files to create the logo.bin and logo.md5 files in the c:\books\tools\v5logos folder. The 'cd' command is "Change Directory", which puts the command-line windows "current working directory" where the v5logos program is. The second line is the execution of the v5logos program itself, and the two quoted strings (in case of spaces in the file names) are how you tell the v5logos program which two bitmaps to use (it automatically outputs to the 'logo.bin' and 'logo.md5' file names). The 'exit' command closes the command-line window.

Once you've done the above, then you can use your standard methods (File Explorer) to create the "\jinke\logo" folders on your SD card and copy the 'logo.bin' and 'logo.md5' files from c:\books\tools\v5logos (or wherever you chose to unZIP the program to) to that folder on the SD card. The rest of the instructions are in the README.TXT file that's included in the V5LOGOS.ZIP file (ie, you'll find it in the c:\books\tools\v5logos, or wherever, folder after you've unZIP'd the download).

It may sound scary, but it's really not that hard. Just print out this message and a copy of the README.TXT file from v5logos, and you shouldn't have ANY trouble following along the steps and achieving your own custom graphics (the graphics .BMP files are up to YOU to create/acquire, though ) for your Pocket Pro TODAY!

Ekaser,

Thanks for the Logo Program!

It's easy to use and works great.

Your efforts are appreciated...
