icu show res/img_0.bin

And you will get a window with the image like before.

Convert an common image format to an common image format

if you want to converting images with logs out put, you can use -vv option.

$ icu -vv convert res/img_0.png res/img_0.jpeg --output-format webp`

if and the output folder will keep the same structure as the input folder.

$ icu convert res -O res/output --output-format jpeg --override-output

or in a short form:

$ icu convert res -O res/output -F jpeg -r

Convert an LVGL image format to an common image format

Convert an LVGL image format to an common image format. And if you specify the --overide-output option, ICU will override the output file if it already exists. And you will get a warning message for sure if the output file already exists.

$ icu -vv convert res/img_0.bin -O res/output -F jpeg -r

Convert an common image format to an LVGL image format

Convert an common image format to an LVGL image format, you need to specify the output color format and lvgl version. But if you don't specify the lvgl version, ICU will use the default version (v9).

$ icu convert res/img_0.png -O res/output -F lvgl -C i8 -r

Convert an common image format to an LVGL image format with stride align

Convert an common image format to an LVGL image format with stride align, you need to specify the output color format, lvgl version, and stride align (default is 1).

4 means the stride of the output image will be 4 bytes aligned.

$ icu convert res/img_0.png -O res/output -F lvgl -C i8 -S 4 -r
