 BitmapCutterGUI.exe

Windows application with user friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) for creating background images. This tool is a replacement of BitmapCutter.exe which is command line application.
Application is present in newer packages of Graphical Installer (the same version): Graphical Installer for NSIS and Graphical Installer for Inno Setup.

Tip: We recommend you to use BitmapCutterGUI.exe instead of old command line BitmapCutter.
It is a modern Windows application with intuitive and user friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) and it is suitable for inexperienced users too.


Work with this application is very simple - everything is similar to old BitmapCutter application. The supported image formats, dimensions and other stuff is the same as in old application.

Usage:

  • Start the application if it is not running - by clicking it's icon in Start menu or directly by launching it. (The application is located in Graphical Installer installation directory - {Inno Setup 5}\Graphical Installer). Main window opens.

  • Step #1: Select file you want to process by clicking the Browse... button. This parameter represents picture from which the inner image will be created. This picture must be EXACTLY 690 pixels wide and 496 pixels high.

    Supported image formats (extensions):

    Extension Description
    .bmp Windows Bitmap up to 24bpp
    .jpg .jpeg JPEG File Interchange Format
    .gif Graphics Interchange Format
    .png Portable Network Graphics
    .tif .tiff Tagged Image File Format
  • Step #2: Select the output type: either Graphical Installer for NSIS or Graphical Installer for Inno Setup.

    • - If you wish to create background picture for Graphical Installer for NSIS select option 'Create background picture for Graphical Installer for NSIS'
      This option simulates command "-c" from BitmapCutter.exe


    • - For creating RTL (Right to Left) image check the 'Create RTL' checkbox next to this option. RTL images are used in some UNICODE languages like Hebrew.
      This option simulates command "-r" from BitmapCutter.exe


    • - If you wish to create background picture for Graphical Installer for Inno Setup select option 'Create background picture for Graphical Installer for Inno Setup'
      This option simulates command "-i" from BitmapCutter.exe


    • - For creating RTL (Right to Left) image check the 'Create RTL' checkbox next to this option. RTL images are used in some UNICODE languages like Hebrew.
      This option simulates command "-u" from BitmapCutter.exe


    You can click the Preview button to show preview of your future installer. Preview is based on the type you choose (NSIS/Inno Setup, RTL or not).
    Preview of installer is shown in a new window - you can close it with the ESC key.

  • Step #3: Generate output image by clicking the Generate button. The resulting images are stored in the same directory as input image.

    If some error occurs during processing the image an message box is shown and error log is written to file.

    Tip:
    If you use smaller (larger) image than 690x496 pixels the resulting image will be stretched (narrowed). Always use picture 690 pixels wide and 496 pixels high.
    If your desired image does not meet some criteria a warning message is shown in application window.

  • Click Close button to exit the application.
