Sorry, no Christmas theme here yet. I was 11 years old the summer of '79, and that was the year my older brother (16) and sister (18) pitched-in to buy a 1964 Ford Galaxy 500, maroon colored, with side pipes, Kreger rims, and 8-track player and CB radio. I've been enamored by the 60's model Galaxy 500 series ever since. Here is my tribute. Sorry, I haven't found any pictures with side pipes yet. 

 

59 Ford Galaxy 500. 55 colors.

64 blue Galaxy 500. 81 colors.

64 red G500. 36 colors.

65 green G500. 44 colors.

65 blue/green G500. 64 colors.

67 maroon G500. 56 colors.

67 yellow G500. 39 colors.

69 fastback G500. 62 colors.

64 custom G500. 74 colors.

Should be "Galaxie".

 

Ford Galaxy is their modern day soccer-mom SUV from Europe.

Oops. Well, then, many of these images were misspelled as well. I saw both spellings and went with what I posted. I plead ignorance and bad memory. Maybe I'll post a .zip later with all names corrected.

These cars are fantastic. I am impressed by your work and how Rastaconverter pushes Atari to the limit of its graphic capabilities.

This thread never ceases to amaze me, that the old 8-bit could produce such images!

I think I'll start a new auto-shopper magazine using only Rasta conversions for the pictures.

Give me an Atari with 128 colors and I can paint the world!

And just for comic effect, the next picture you post should be of the world. =-)

I have tried the famous Blue Marble in the past, but couldn't get it right. Might have another go at it...

I reckon Earthrise from Apollo 8 would probably be a better choice.  For better effect probably one of the doctored ones with brown moon surface and stars in the background.

Atari 8 'Earthrise'. 29 colors. Seriously cropped in order to get any level of detail at such a low resolution.

Earth. 60 colors.

Knocking them out of the ballpark here!  This one reminds me of an earlier conversion of mine (man - file date says 2013).  318,560,000 evaluations with a distance of 17.692818.

 

This was the photo I used.

That's a great one! At least it looks great on my PAL setup. Colors are right. Did you want me to attempt a better one? I'm not sure I could. I think maybe we could get a bit more detail just by cropping the picture a bit more to squeeze in a few more pixels of detail from the original image. I could do that with my 'Earth' image too, for that matter. I cropped to 4:3, but could zoom in a bit more.

 

Is this an image done with a standard PAL palette Stephen? How many colors were used?

Didn't really want you to re-attempt it, your image just reminded me of a somewhat visually similar, if completely differently coloured image!  I'm sorry - I don't recall any of the details as I did this 4 years ago.  I will assume I used whatever RastaConverter was defaulting to back when I did this.

 

I do have all the output.* files if you want I can ZIP them and post.

Posting this from the other thread.  I spent zero time on this, didn't resize it myself like I normally do so it is not vertically centered.  It was a quick 5 minute drag & drop operation while I was "on lunch" at work.

Wow, wait a minute there ! If there's one famous 2D game I'd have bet is impossible to come even remotely close in visuals on A800, it's Rayman.

 

How in the world can all those millions of shades approximate so well ?!?

 

Could you please spend a day evaluating this ? I'm sure I'm not the only one who just WTF'ed at the 5-minute conversion!

This is nothing more than a static image, using the RastaConvertor (PC based) image converter.

I understand, I have been following this thread last few years.

That's why I'm surprised the smooth transitions of green translate so well with just few iterations.

Can't fool the eye on large patches of low-frequency green like for example the high-frequency dragon scales few posts above.
