How do I convert a picture that was taken into a PNG image that can be put on the iPhone starting screen?

Asked by xxporkxsodaxx (1386points) August 9th, 2008

Here are the needs that I thought I met but I was sadly mistaken “PNG files in RGB or Grayscale format with Alpha channel and dimension below 320×480 pixels. Size of compressed image is limited to 100 kb”. Anyone who can guide me through this or link me to a page that can will receive a big fat thank you.

If the PNG contains tranparency, it may not work but I can’t say for sure. Try converting it to a JPEG for use as an iPhone wallpaper.

p.s. If your iPhone is jailbroken, all bets are off. Who knows what gets hosed when you hack things?

I’ve tried to convert it but it just says it’s not the right format.

What says? Photoshop?

No, PwnageTool.

See above.

What do you mean? It’s already a jpg but it needs to work with PwnageTool as a start up icon to substitute for the Apple logo or Pineapple so it has to follow the guidelines posted above so it will be accepted. I asked my DevFriends to help me out because they probably know what to do and how to do it, I also think it’s something else that I’m not doing right.

I mean Pwnage tool fucked up your iPhone.

How so? It did what I wanted it to and restoring the phone with default firmware puts everything back where it was so how did it fuck it up?
