     Pic2Raw converts pictures .jpg, .gif & .bmp to raw binary data and can be converted to decimal & hexadecimal as well. It is super heavily commented thus making it a great learning tool for beginners. Something that I have learned from & wanted to pass on. Thanks to Lewis Miller for the lesson as well as the .bas module. Hope it helps & enjoy! NOTE: depending on what OS you are running you may have to change the semi colons to the pipe symbol in the filter. Im running windows 10 but older OS's you may have to change them for the prog to work correctly note: added more commenting to better explain and help beginners.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Works as advertised, and reasonably fast, too.

thanks John, it is greatly appreciated. you wouldn't believe how slow it was when it was first written. thanks to a friend of mine (lewis miller) who showed me how to pre-allocate the buffer to make it almost instant after that I was so excited I decided to add the copy & save in the menu although that could already be achieved due to the rtb's autoverbmenu being set to true. I was going to add the ability to rotate the pic until I discovered (thru testing it myself) that the data remained unchanged so it was at that point I posted it, glad you liked it
