There may be some limitation on the IMG (during conversion or display pallate ? ) as the colours comes out incorrect sometimes.

They do JPG directly and up to 32 bits colour.
wongck wrote:Ah... yes. Thanks Joska for clarifying the wallpaper for XaAES. Indeed that's the method for getting the wallpaper into XaAES. Despite of the steps, it does look like you start off with a JPG and nothing else.
