  Volhout said  I am sure this is not the opportune moment to ask, but how difficult is it to add JPG save and load to SD card, alternative to BMP ? Is it RAM memory ?
The 24bit BMP files are huge, and especially if you are using only 8 or 16 colors the JPG's should be significantly smaller.

I'm not sure how large the JPEG compression and decompression algorithms are but I suspect they are non-trivial and the room they would take up in the firmware could be better spent on something more generally useful. This sounds like a definite candidate for a CSUB and not firmware. YMMV.

Best wishes,
