Boot image format

Hello,

First post! I have bought a Pocketbook 360 for my wife, and I would like to change the boot image.

Unfortunately, and after following the advice from another thread:

To achieve that - on Linux - use Gimp's
Colors->Desaturate to make it black and white
Colors->Posterize, 4 levels and save as Windows Bitmap

It doesn't want to play, telling me that the image format is wrong. it is 600x800 pxs

I have saved the file as a bmp, but I only get 16, 24 and 32 bit options using Gimp.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Kind regards


Ah, found the answer - changed the mode to b/w instead of desaturating, before posterizing!

What operating system on your computer you are using?
Are you able to install imagemagick?

see those threads

You can also use irfanview as described in the first post in this thread

I am using escher.png as an example, but you can use any format, not only png as a base for conversion with convert program from imagemagick package, even bmp.
