No, I hadn't. The online browser for 8bs disc issues is also pretty cool!

Initial release of an update to BBCtoBMP.
* Something I've wanted to do for some time, it now understands Acorn User LDPIC files. You have to specify the source file is a LDPIC file as currently it can't work it out for itself as it can with ScrLoad files.
* Also, understands the LDPIC 12-bit palette extension.

Updated gallery of BBC images converted to BitMaps here.
Bunny and TaiPic are images where's I've experimentally added a 12-bit palette.
