Ooops! 0.8.5 had a bug in it that caused it not to print. Download 0.8.6 instead!

The web page has been restructured a little, including the addition of this page.

HP has released a new printer - the 710 series. You can use pbm2ppa with these printers by configuring it as if you had a 720 printer.

Software release notes

Release notes for pbm2ppa 0.8.5

Expanded Makefile macros to work with more versions of make (e.g. FreeBSD)

Added support for A4-sized paper!

Fixed a bug that caused an infinite loop.

Fixed a memory leak 

Miscellaneous bug fixes

Changes for pbm2ppa from version 0.8.3 to 0.8.4

Fixed a bug that caused horrendous shearing effects on the 820 (and probably others). There is still a small problem with shearing and intensity differences between sweeps, but the overall quality is much improved. Thanks to Joe Dery for his bug report and help fixing the problem.

Changes for pbm2ppa from version 0.8.2 to 0.8.3

Compression support! Much faster printing!
