The Violator one is a fairly easy one to do, as that one only uses about 4 or 5 colors. Nice to see a fellow modehead, tho personally I am more of an Erasure/Vince Clarke fan. :)

"Hobo with a shotgun"

 

Created this way:

Original:

My convert (after 485 million of iterations):

And the xex file:

Enjoy!

How does details mask work and how would I generate a details mask from a picture to use in the Rasta Converter. I poked around the Rasta FAQ and Forum Posts but still did not find the answer to this question so decided it was best to ask.

 

BTW all the pictures are really great. I love this tool and have been playing with it for a long time now and still enjoying it.

I forgot to ask if there is a utility that will let me extract the raw picture file from the.xex files? Would they extract to a known atari picture format so that i could use one of the many picture viewers with slide show function?

 

thank you

With SpartaDOS you can batch file the Raster View images to view continuously just needs a key press for each new view.

RastaConverter executables are not only raw data but the main part is the raster program that shows the data. The program is generated for each picture separately.

Thank you and thanks for all your great work and pictures you have shared here. Do you happen to have a link to a document explaining how the details mask function works?

So if I take the original picture then cover with a black layer and use an erase function to re-expose important areas of the photo would that work as a mask picture?

 

It will work. I usually add a new layer, select a shape that I want to make more detailed, fill it with white, invert selection, fill the rest with black.

Thank you very much for taking time to answer my question. I will give it a try.
