Pictures from my Aardvark!

Now I'm not much of a circles guy, I'm more into pictures and interaction so the past couple of days, I've been working on making images for the IDE...give me a touch screen with images and I'm happy. I sat down and figured out ways of making images easier to get on to the touchshield. Oh and it's on my mac too....

Now Windows users aren't the only ones that can take advantage of the new Open Gadget format; Mac users can go and download it over at the app store and run them in the Arduino Antipasto Aardvark IDE now as well! If you haven't toyed around with the Aardvark yet, the open gadget format is the new file format that allows you to keep the code for the modules in your gadget separate. You can now program an Illuminato and a Slide from one window and just switch between them.
The Aardvark also has drag and drop file transfer; anyone can add files easily to their Slide apps by simply dragging and dropping files on to the data tab of the module that their currently working on, then just click transfer and look at your images in all of their pixilated glory!
I'm sharing it over on the app store so anyone can check it out. [Mac] [Windows]

Yes, i have seen it before, but the problem is when i drag and drop the images to the screen, it appers many exceptions and i can transfer it to my slide. Thanks

@lsi

I get the same thing in Windows. The Mac version seems to be a bit more stable.

Anyways, I just talked with Omar and Mike and they've got a nice sized list of bug fixes that's being worked into 0.8.5 to address the image transfer window stuff.

I hear that release is just around the corner for this Monday or by Tues.
