Comparison with other tools
- ConvImgCPC is intended for manual tweaking and saving to CPC format with a manual workflow.
- On the contrary, gfx2crtc is perfect for automated build workflow: work on your images in some general use format like PNG, and only convert automatically at build time.
- can convert not only full screens, but also sprites (one sprite per input image, not too big)
Written in portable C. Linux, Mac OS, Windows (code mentions mingw), probably others.
