This is a somewhat odd project I am attempting to accomplish. I have an Apple II with MousePaint and I am attempting to load in images created on a more modern computer. Seeing as MousePaint is a clone of MacPaint I assumed that the file type would be similar.
This process worked for MacPaint:
Process a photo into a 1 bit black and white image > Save file as .PIC > Transfer to older Macintosh.
These images open without a problem in MacPaint however when I attempt to load them into MousePaint the display is filled with random noise. For testing purposes I have tried it both in the AppleWin emulator and on my Apple //e. I also tried using the "Show Image File" desk accessory in Apple II DeskTop without success. I understand that the graphics engine between the Mac and Apple II are very different.
I am curious if anyone else has attempted to accomplish this task.
Attached is a screenshot of the Apple II emulator as well as what happens when I attempt to load the image on a Macintosh.
