oled_example Minor example update Jan 25, 2016
index.html Small text change Oct 8, 2018


Use this tool online at

image2cpp is a simple tool to change images into byte arrays (or your array back into an image) for use with (monochrome) displays suchs as OLEDs, like those from Adafruit or Sparkfun. While searching for a way to generate these arrays, I mostly found links to a piece of Windows software. Both the flakey results and the hassle of having to boot a virtual machine just to convert an image lead to me writing this pure html + javascript solution.

Alternatively you can also enter a byte array as input to turn it back into an image. This might be useful for debugging, or when you want to write the byte array yourself. I don't know.

Running the tool

You don't need any special dependencies / internet connection; all the necessary parts sit in a single .html file. So just open this index.html page in a (recent) browser to run the tool. Or you can use the online version at

Example Arduino code

You can find a simple Arduino example sketch over here in the repository.

Screen types

I wrote the code with my 128x64 pixel monochrome OLED display in mind, but it should work with most similar displays. You might need to change some export settings; those are explained in the tool.


Initial code by javl, with aditional code by wiredolphin, davidalim and whoisnian. The example sketch was made by Adafruit.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
