Opening Screen
Made Easy
John 'Miklor'   K3NXU
Here's a Summary of the steps needed
to customize your opening screen.

I used Photoshop to create the initial image,
but any image creator will work.


Using Photoshop or MS Paint, create your initial image.
    The native screen resolution is 128x160 (4:5 ratio).
    Final Format must be .bmp  (256 bit)

Microsoft Paint

Right click on the new image and open with Microsoft Paint.

Save the new image using
     File / Save as / BMP Picture
     Assign a  .bmp  file name
     Save as Type:  256 Color Bitmap

Uploading the Image

Open the DMR FW upgrade software
Select: "Open file of BMP" and enter the location of your image.
Select: "Download file of BMP" and watch the status bar.
That's it...
You've just loaded your own Customized image.

Here's the one I created for my 2017.
You can download and use this one if you wish.

Have fun and Enjoy your New Toy.
