When developing software in C++, especially for Linux, it is sometimes desirable to be able to save an image, such as an icon or bitmap, in XPM format
to enable the compiler to incorporate the image within a program's executable file.
But while many standard image converters will load or view XPM files, there are not many tools available to create an XPM file.
Image2XPM provides a simple to use windows GUI tool to convert multiple input image files to XPM format.
1. Download Image2XPM from this page (see button below).
3. Unzip the Image2XPM executable into a location of your choice.
1. Start the Image2XPM executable.
2. Browse and select the input files. Multiple files from the one folder may be selected.
3. Browse and select a folder for the output files. You can make a new folder if desired.
4. Click 'Execute', and Image2XPM will produce the desired XPM files in the selected output folder.
This is free software and is provided free of charge, 'as is' with no warranty.
