Rletopaint converts a file from
format to MacPaint format. The program uses
dithering to convert from a full 24 bit color image to a bitmapped image.
If the RLE file is larger than a MacPaint image (576×720) it is cropped to
Because MacPaint files have their coordinate origin in the upper left instead
of the lower left, the RLE file should be piped through
The resulting file can be downloaded to a Macintosh in binary mode,
and should be given a type of
PNTG and a creator of
MPNT, so it will be recognized as a MacPaint file.
Use a linear map in the conversion from 24 bits to bitmapped output.
-g [ gamma ]
Use a gamma map of
gamma (gamma is 2.0 if not specified).
Invert the sense of the output pixels (white on black instead of black
on white). For normal images, you probably want this flag.

Should use a color map in the file, if present.
