I have been trying (not to hard) to find a way to generate one pixel by one pixel images (png) for a large number of colors. I made up a few by hand in Gimp
but there was no way I was going to do that for hundreds... so last night I stumbled across PNGwriter
. Oh, just what the doctor (makefile) ordered. I hacked on it a bit while watching tv last night and now I have a quick little program for generating pixels. Not overly clean but it does the job. Why you ask? Well I have these 1x1 pixels as my screen saver, so when my little one sees the screen she calls out the colors... she loves it and it helps us teach her colors.
Offer up your ideas on generating 1x1 pixel images as well or even code snips of using the pngwriter library.
For what it's worth.
