In version 1, I made a2pix into a Photoshop plugin. I don't have the time right now to rev the plugins to 2.0 (or 3 for that matter), perhaps I'll get to it later. For now, use the app to convert your pix then bring them into Photoshop.
a2pix.sit.hqx for Macintosh (62.5k) includes:
Readme a2pix 2.0 Application (68k and PowerMac fat) a2pix 1.0 Photoshop plugins (B&W and Color) (both also fat)
Why am I doing this? You really wanna know? Click here. Of course it has much evolved since then. Now it's just for the fun of it.
A historical note about attempting to get the a2pix engine into an emulator.
pictures.sit.hqx A set of Apple ][ pictures (369k). These pictures work with a2pix. Some also work with DazzleDraw, some with BeagleGraphics. Some pictures look good in some modes and stupid in other modes, others vice versa.
