Pico Explorer - Displaying Images

Hi there,

Does anybody know if the Examples in ST7789 are compatible with the Pico Explorer? Trying out the image.py functionality stops at “from PIL import Image”. My guess is that Pillow is not in the custom firmware.

What would be the best way to display images on the Pico Explorer?


This may help.

Thanks for the link. That I can do, I was just curious as to displaying a jpg or a gif using the file system to load a file, as per the example in the ST7789 library. I guess my best option would be to read the RGB values of the image and make a list of it on my desktop and then copy and paste that into Thonny.

I don’t think the Python examples will run in Micro Python on a PICO. Not easily anyway.
And there is only the one demo for that display in MicroPython.
