Hello everybody,
Today I made a script to Nautilus (Linux) that converts in 3 clicks background images for CtrBootManager and as it did me bored I decided to share it with you.

Prerequisites:

The top images must be 400x240
The bottom images must be 320x240
"it must" (...not necessarily but I have not done much testing yet....) be in .png format.

For Linux Users:
imagemagick (convert)

1) Press [ALT]+[F2] for run this command
Code:
nautilus ./.local/share/nautilus/scripts
2) create a new file without extension, with the name "convert to bgr" per ex. (or "convert to 3ds, etc... as you prefer.)
3) open the file with your favorite text editor and paste this:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

while [ $# -gt 0 ]; do
    picture=$1
    bgr_file=`echo "$picture" | sed 's/\.\w*$/.bin/'`
    /usr/bin/convert "$picture" -channel BGR -separate -channel RGB -combine -rotate 90 bgr:"$bgr_file"
    shift
done

close this.
4) right click > PROPERTIES > go to the 'Permissions' tab and Check the box that states to make the file executable


So now right click on your png(s) > scripts > "convert to bgr" et voila!!!




exemple here:


For Windows Users:

1) Download the script IMGtoBIN3DS and extract it, with 7zip, in subfolder
2) Prepare your images in a folder (named CTRBoot per ex) with a clean name (like this: top_theme.png; bot_theme.png or theme400.png; theme320.png)
3) Drag'n'drop (yes in 1 word!) your folder on IMGtoBIN.bat
4) Your images is ready! paste to SD

IMGtoBIN on free.fr
IMGtoBIN on multiupfile

Video soon...

Is this gonna be a CTR boot manager background sharing thread?

As a general rule, everyone should post their boot.cfg 's theme settings so that we get the right color for the background.
