I will NOT answer questions about this program!
Everything that I know about, or learn about KTPIC will be placed in this document. If the information isn't here, I don't know the answer. I don't recommend KTPIC for the technical novice or anyone without a sense of adventure, self-motivating curiousity, a willingness to experiment and test, or the persistence to read all the documentation.
Craig White's was the instrumental contributor who translated the KTPIC documentation and screens from Kanji (Japanese) to English. Many thanks to him for the hours spent on a program, which ironically, he'll probably never use! And myself, I will probably never fix all the bizarre side effects of having installed Japanese language support on my XP laptop.
KTPIC was written for phone models, brands, and services available only in Japan. While there's been some success getting it to produce files compatible with Sprint PCS Vision phones, it's not perfect. I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the translations, our interpretations of the program's workings, or the workings of the KTPIC program. Consequently, I don't recommend KTPIC for the technical novice or anyone without a sense of adventure, self-motivating curiousity, and a willingness to experiment and test.

KTPIC is a free program that converts images into a format compatible with cell phones. Its menus and documentation are in Japanese, and the phones targeted by the software are specific to Japan. Consequently, it's been an extreme challenge producing this documentation. The information contained herein may be in error.
Fortunately, KTPIC works "well enough" with some Sprint PCS Vision phones. It can create PMD animations (also known as CMX files). Until KTPIC was discovered, the only (and still the only "official" way) to create PMD files was with software from Faith West, Inc. (a U.S. subsidary of the Japanese company Faith, Inc.) Faith partnered with Qualcomm to bring the CMX format (Compact Media Extensions) to U.S. phones. I will refer to these as PMD files rather than CMX files since the CMX files have ".PMD" extensions. You can read about the CMX file format at http://www.cdmatech.com/solutions/products/cmx.html. You can read about Faith, Inc. at http://www.faith-inc.com.
The software from Faith West, Inc. is superior to KTPIC because it IS designed to create PMD files for Sprint PCS Vision phones. Consequently, it can create both animated screen savers and animated ringers (animation WITH sound). But Faith has refused to sell their toolkit to individuals, and the corporate price, I'm told, is extremely high (about $500.00?).
Therefore, techie adventurers have turned to KTPIC to create PMD files. KTPIC was created in the spring/summer of 2002. The "KT" comes from the Japanese term "keitai" (pronounced "kay tie"), which means "portable." Cell phones are "ketai denwa" or "portable phone."
UPDATE 08.09.2004. Thanks to Mike West who sent me version 1.14a. Since neither of us can read Japanese, we're uncertain how it's different. So I will leave both versions on the we site for now.
You can download KTPIC100.LZH it from the author's web site. The file is a compressed in the old LHA archive format. You'll need LHA or WinRar to extract the individual files.
But, for your convenience, I've recompressed the files in the ZIP archive format. You can use WinZip, PKzip, etc. to extract the files. Installation instructions are given in the translated "help file" (see the Table of Contents above).

If you really like this software, and use it long term, you can make a donation. ===== Symbol description main Here main function and basic operation etc. of the KTPIC are explained. Concerning size selection concerning trimming concerning batch conversion concerning EZ animation creation wizard concerning various configurations concerning mail transmission ===== Size selection With size selection, size and drawing manner etc. of the image which is opened from now are specified. ? Size list version 0. classified by type From 88 sizelist. Being optional, it tried to be able to specify the size classified by type by editing txt. Specification of list is as follows. If it is the range of specification, it is freely rewriting and adding possible. Example: --------------------------------------------------------------------- C401SA wallpaper (120x128) [ line feed ] ? First column * & & & & & & & & & & & * halfway abbreviation * & & & & & & & & & & & * C5001T Web (144x135) [ line feed ] ? After from last column here when please does not insert what (especially line feed is inserted, there are times when error comes out. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * (it rewrites freely to before and it is possible. * Inside the parenthesis x the x of half angle small character (x) is at size of side x length. * As for end of column) with after that please be sure to insert line feed. ? Explanatory * image size of configuration entry size of the image which is created (vertical x side) it specifies. The classified by type, option, it can open the image at that way size. However, in case of that way size when opening the image with the general image editing software, it is the same. * When enlargement * reduction image expanding reducing the image which is opened in the size which is specified at size manner is specified. * While length and breadth maintaining the length and breadth ratio of the image which is opened in the size which is specified at the image size which maintains ratio, it expands reduces. It meaning that length and breadth ratio is maintained, it specifies when we would not like to destroy image that much. "The margin is cut off", when check is inserted, after the enlargement reducing the part which is left over is cut off. When we would like to display the image on the center, check is removed. * The picture the size which all the way is specified at expansion and contraction image size it expands reduces the image which is opened all the way. However, image becomes dirty that the size which is specified length and breadth ratio of size of the image which is opened is not the same. * Without the enlargement reduction which it does not expand & does not reduce it loads at that way size. When the image which is smaller than the size which is specified at image size is opened and there is no possibility image deteriorating completely when trimming. * Background color length and breadth ratio is maintained, without expanding & reducing, when opening, it paints with the color which specifies the margin. * Trimming the range which likes the image when the clipping you want is inserted in trimming job by the fact that "the trimming" button is pushed. ===== Trimming With trimming while the position where we like the image looking at the preview the clipping is possible simply. You push "the trimming" button with basic operation size selection, move to trimming job.

In addition, while pushing the shift key here, when it does this, the range it can select at the same length and breadth ratio as image size. Looking at the preview, when position has slipped, it moves with the right button drag of the mouse. The application button is pushed lastly. Expanding position of the explanatory * magnifier mouse of configuration entry to 4 times, it is indicatory. * Coordinate specified range selection coordinate can be specified with numerical entry. The left, on, the right and under have displayed the quadrangular side of the respective range of choice framework. The ten-key of course the cursor key being, can input numerical value. * Preview size the preview is displayed with size and the enlargement reduction option which are specified with selection. * When real time it draws checks the preview is drawn in real time. Because of this, while verifying the preview, when range selecting and moving and to not releasing the mouse, the preview is updated because, you can work more smoothly. * The image is opened that way when the whole it is not selected is not trimmed. * Enlargement reduction size it is the function which is equal to selection. Here it is reflected on the preview by this configuration. ===== Batch conversion With batch conversion, "the ? which opens the file; Size selective ? Color number selective ? Enlargement reduction ? With specification format retention "is implemented at buttons 1. Because of this, the work of converting to specification format when the multiple images are used as a home page and the one for EZ animation for portable telephone considerably becomes easy. ? The drag & drop doing the basic operation additional button or the file on the list, it adds the file which it converts to the list. Image size and color number etc. are configurated respectively. Ahead retaining pushing the access button, it specifies the folder. The file which is added to the list with the conversion start button ahead retaining is batched is converted to the folder. ? Size of vertical x side of the image after the explanation * image size converting of the configuration entry is configurated. * Color number color number of the image after the converting is configurated. * It configurates how it expands reduces enlargement vis-a-vis the image size after reducing and the conversion. * Format the image format after the converting is specified. * CRC it is necessary to the case where the file is made to download on addition EZweb in one for EZweb. When check is acquired, of the file CRC information is added lastly. * Ahead retaining the folder where the image after the converting is retained is specified. When the same file of name exists in the folder which is specified, overwriting verification dialogue is displayed. ===== EZ animation creation wizard The screen saver * dispatching animation * EZ animation for au and Tu-Ka can create with EZ animation creation wizard, simply with wizard format. ? In case of basic operation au type It selects whether "PMD format (the for au type)" it selects with the format, with creation manner creates from the multiple PNG files or the GIF animation file. When it creates from the GIF animation file, pushing the access button, it selects the GIF animation file. Pushing button to the next, next it advances. Pushing the additional button, the image size which animation does (vertical x side) adds the image of the same PNG format to the list. Putting file name in a selective state first, to on, to under, it is possible to change the sequence of scene with the last button. In addition, the preview of the image is displayed with the right click. Pushing button to the next, next it advances. Easy mode is selected, the number of waits is configurated.

As for text editing as for the necessity especially to configurate it is not. Pushing button to the next, next it advances. Display position and capacity of the file (fee) you verify lastly in the preview. Pushing the retention button, it retains the file. 2. 3. 4. It can retain even the time. In case of Tu-Ka type With format "PNG format (the for part type of Tu-Ka and au)" after the selecting in case of above-mentioned au type 1. 2.5. 6. It is the same as operation. However, 2. When adding the file to the list, they must be 6 scenes or less. ? The explanatory * format of various entries (the type) the type of portable telephone of errand is selected. * It selects whether creation mannered the image which is made animation the multiple PNG files or the GIF animation file. * Easy mode wait it can make animation simply with configuration only of number. * Custom mode configuration entry increases. This way is the for medium * upper-class person. * Title title of animation is configurated. * Date creation date is configurated. Present date is configurated with default. * Tempo the tempo which displays animation is configurated. As for default with 127, the extent tempo whose value is large becomes fast. * Wait several the number of latency of scenes and scene is configurated. * Wait time wait several one latency of amounts is configurated. As for default with 255, the extent display interval whose value is small becomes fast. * When attachment the animation file which it inhibited created sending to transmiting with download or the mail, from there attaching to the mail of transmiting, it tries not to be able to send, copyright protects. * CRC it is necessary to the case where the file is made to download on addition EZweb in one for EZweb. When check is acquired, of the file CRC information is added lastly. * Text editing it makes effective to the case where the text is displayed in scene. The scene where we would like to display the text after the selecting it inputs character in the entry box under, pushes the Enter key, or selects the following scene, decides text entry. * The preview display of the animation which was created can be verified. File size of animation and fee when you send with the mail are displayed. If the type of portable telephone of errand it selects, you can verify generally display position. However, as for display interval of preview 0. Because it is 5 second fixing, it is not the display interval which is configurated with option. * You send after the retaining with the mail, when it checks, after the file archive the file which is retained is added by the list of mail transmission can send automatically, directly with the mail. ===== Mail transmission Attaching the wallpaper and the animation file which were created to the specified mail simply, can with mail transmission, send to the portable telephone. ?
