bin2img converter v2.4.1 final
(c) 2010-2013 thecodemonkey
bin2img v2.4.1 is a tool, that converts regular (i.e. binary) files to the Portable Network Graphics format (PNG), which enables the user to upload these files to image hosting sites. Usually on these sites you only can upload images. Therefore the tool encodes the byte structure of a file to corresponding pixel colors.
- Use the program at your own risk
- It is strictly and explicitly prohibited to use bin2img for sharing copyrighted and/or any kind of illegal files
- We can _NOT_ be held liable for data loss, copyright infringements and/or other illegal actions of the users
- We do _NOT_ host any uploaded files, b2i://-links are auto-generated meta links that re-link to the real destination (Base64 encoded → no encryption)
- The users must read and accept the Terms Of Service of the image hosting sites they use. The users are responsible for their uploads / downloads and must find out _BEFORE_ uploading / downloading anything if they are permitted
* to use bulk upload / download tools
* to upload images containing binary data coded in the pixel colors.
Otherwise the hosting site owners might delete accounts and/or all images and/or take other (legal) actions
- The tool
* does _NOT_ use inline linking (a.k.a. hotlinks), unless image hosting sites provide such links exclusively
* is licensed under the terms of the European Union Public License v1.1
