Assuming that first picture is an OFFIMG, would you care to share it, Walter?
Of course it's an OFFIMG but according to grsbanks its OFF TOPIC. :P

Two people that are important in calculating history; Leibniz and Hewlett.

I've tested and uploaded them here:

Now if you could come up with a pic of Jan Lukasiewicz, you'd really have something! :)

What software do you use to convert photos to b/w 1-bit color depth? When I use PAINT.NET to do it, the pictures are just about unrecognizeable.

I've used Paintshop Pro (v7 or 8) on a winpc.

I couldn't figure out how to post the pics here though!

The GIMP (https://www.gimp.org/).

First convert to greyscale and get the resolution right. Then go down to 1-bit colour depth and use Floyd-Steinberg dithering and you should be good to go.
