Fat Splash Image
Posted on 1998-11-26
Here's what I am doing: I have been experimenting with replacing the obnoxious Win start up splash screen (logo.sys) with custom images. I've succeeded in doing this in a couple of ways including some excellent freeware I downloaded which allows me to use a bitmap file, but the image is stretched to fill the screen which doesn't do justice to the images.
The splash screen has to be 320 X 400 pixels and 256 colors.
It can be opened and edited with MSPAINT which also allows a save mode for the proper color setting.
The original screen, when viewed w/ paint is distorted so that when it is displayed at startup the proportions are correct.
I have PS 4 . Is there some way to distort a custom image properly so that it will display correctly as a splash screen?
