    not much reason to necro-thread this...

    go here for a similar program that's been updated more recently

    viewtopic.php?f=3&t=188281


    I was thinking of improving my program, but looks like a better program is already out there now. :tongue.gif:

    Guess I can retire the program now. :tongue.gif:

    Nothing in Minecraft uses 8-Bit images. Even the current artwork uses 24/32 bit images. So i don't see why there is any need for an application to make 8-bit images.

    I think you are missing the point. The point of this is to make pixel art out of blocks in the game world. And you can choose any dimensions for the overall construction to fit into.

    It's for making pixel art in the actual game, You want to put the mona lisa out of basic game blocks? Get a picture of the mona lisa, run it through the program, giving the height of the gap in the game world you want, and it'll generate a template for you to make the mona lisa in the minecraft world out of generic blocks you can get in the world.

    8bit, 24 bit 32 bit, none of that makes much sense in the context of this program.

    Nice to see it got a little bit of interest at least. :tongue.gif:

    The truely useful part of this program isn't really the pixelation aspect of it, it's more the colour matching and the ability to easily resize to whatever dimensions the gap you have chosen to put pixel art into.

    I've been working on a program the last couple days for helping with pixel art in minecraft.
    I made it for a university assignment, but I thought someone might get some use out of it anyway so I might as well release it.

    It's basically a program that pixelates any image into a height defined by the user and then matches the colours to those available in the normal minecraft flavours. Basically it converts any image you want into an image ready for use as a template for pixel art.
    For example if you want to convert a picture into a piece of pixel art 32 blocks high, you feed the image into the program and the height and it'll make you a picture that you can use to create your pixel art.

    Here's an example:
    Before Processing:

    After Processing:


    The program also has the capability of using only the colours the user defines (from a preset amount of colours).
    Note that this is a veeerrryyy early version of this program. If you make mistakes entering numbers and variables, the program will crash spectacularly. :SSSS: If people show much interest I'll polish it up so it won't do this anymore. :tongue.gif:

    Not sure if this has been done before, but oh well.

    How to use it is in the readme.
