    Bitmap for OLED displays

    user_385543602

       Hi,

         

      I got a SSD1306 OLED display from eBay to work using some code contributed by a community member.  The code is based on an Adafruit library.  See the attached project.  I cannot, however seem to get a bitmap to display.  I am using this program to convert a .bmp to a char array, but it comes up on the display as garbage, though it seems there is some hint of the image there.  

         

      Library:

      Converter tool:

      Any ideas?

         

      Thank you,
      Tom
