Thank you for your kind words and pointing out the error. I have updated the photo with the correct dimensions. 8-)

Retro Dither was updated to version 1.3.1 on the Mac App Store. Several enhancements. The biggest one to me is the image resize (shrink) now can be entered by hand. No more sliding the percentage slider. If you have an image that is already cropped to the ratio of 400:240, you can key in 400 and your target DPI of 70 and export a BMP image natively from the App. Another major improvement.

Another big fix was the large image bug. It appears to handle large images fine and shrinks them properly. If you have Retro Dither, I would update it and try out the improved version.

Darth Vader made with Retro Dither 1.3.1.

With your lightspeed, it makes me wonder how a ludicrous speed would look?
