HMI – Image Editor

One of the tools I need to add for HMI Designer is a bitmap/Image editor. A simple bitmap editor is easy to create just using an array of 32×32 positions and allow the user to set colors to them.

One technique could be to allow an image to be drawn in full size and then converted to various sizes like this example based on MSPaint.

Doing this using my existing diagram editor would be straight forward, but I would also like the capability to import various formats.

The primary usage is bitmap/tools in HMI Designer itself, but this is also an important part of any HMI designer. Doing this in a vector based drawing tool lgive the advantage of full scalability, so combining this with a controlled capability to create faste, fixed bitmap’s as output might be an idea.
