How to get pictures on ili9341 lcd screen

by efeigenbaum on Thu May 16, 2019 8:18 pm

I am trying to use my ili9341 2.8" LCD touchscreen to see .BMP pictures. According to the documentation there should be an example file called spitftmap in the library but there isn't. Any idea how to find it? I've tried but can't locate it anywhere. I am using the SPI method.

Also, how do you convert pictures to BMP format on a MAC?

Thanks.

Actually, never mind. I figured out how to do it again I ended up having to use a PC to import JPEG’s into paint and then saving to the SD card as a 24 BMP file. I still have a few bugs to work out because most of my pictures are working however some of them are not. I will look into that later but I am happy with the product.
