Color #23 (CGA Update)

Posted by Trixter on February 25, 2018

There was a time when conversion of real-world images to computer screens was considered a black art. Those days are gone, but it’s still fun to dabble.

The Mann Cave

My friend Jim ‘Trixter’ Leonard is a bit of a CGA aficionado.  You know, that computer graphics mode from the 1980’s?  He did a nostalgic conversion of my photo into one of the two available 4-color pallets (I think that’s correct?) and the results are dithertastic.  Take a look.


Pretty remarkable how well the photo holds up with such a severe restriction on colors.  Thanks for the fun conversion, Jim!
