I'm in the planning phases of my first Atari programming project in over 30 years, and I need a little help on file transport.

 

I really have no idea about graphics file conversion. Does anyone know of a tool that will take graphics created on the Mac and prep them for use on Atari, including file formats? Back in the day, I would use GraphicConverter for most everything, but that's been bought by someone and who knows what it does anymore.

 

I see there is a Windows application that is expressly for creating Atari graphics, but I own no Windows machines.

 

As to text conversion, will the Atari choke on a straight TXT export? I would imagine these days, even the most stripped down export relies on some UTF standard that the A8 will have no clue about. Any insights?

 

Thanks,

J.
