     OCS (Open Convert Save) is a variation of my pic2raw prog. opens a pic, converts it to data and you are able to save it to a .txt file. the gui is different and so is the open file as it uses MS CommonDialog.controls so you will need that because I didn't include it since psc removes ocx"s. its commented very little. basically a different way to do the same thing, enjoy! NOTE: depending on what OS you are running you may have to change the semi colons to the pipe symbol in the filter. Im running windows 10 but older OS's you may have to change them for the prog to work correctly

commonDialog1.Filter = "Images|*.jpg;*.gif;*.bmp"

see that line of code after images that's the pipe symbol should be somewhere above your back slash try changing the semi colons after .jpg & .gif to the pipe symbol if that doesn't work try colon. if that doesn't work try my pic2raw prog & lemme know if that works for you its the same thing without the commondialog & please let me know, thanks
