Packaging for Sinclair QL Peintre
This is a bitmap drawing program produced by Pyramide which was controlled through a series of icons.

Quite a neat utility, this provides the most common commands you require. Only handles standard QL screen modes (4 and 8colours). Alas it cannot handle 512 x 256 pixels and can only handle (384 x 216 pixels) meaning that screens are only 27648 bytes in length (compared to the normal 32768 bytes) - the program expects these screens to have an extension of _Qsc.

However, the screens can be loaded directly to the QL's screen memory although they only show as 216 lines of pixels, rather than the original 256 lines. The 384 pixel display by the program is given black edges on either side.
