Projector-3 is a perfect example of a program that can load a "standard"
picture into memory. There is no standard format for Coco images
although many users have created their own. Then there are graphic
programs such as The RAT and CocoMax-III which have their own Coco image
Perhaps what you mean is a Coco program to dump either a PMODE or
HSCREEN to disk along with the palette colors. Well the OS-9 vef format
is the same as an HSCREEN and I think Projector-3 will save files in the
vef format. In fact, given a vef file in NTSC artifact format,
Projector-3 should display it just fine.
