You mean like pictures? Not particularly a "main VB discussion", but eh. I'll answer.

Get Irfanview,
open picture,
pick Image > Decrease color depth,
set custom amount of colors to 4 (for a VB effect) (try this both with and without dithering),
pick Image > Color corrections,
Set the G and B sliders to 0 and play around with all the other sliders until it looks good,
Save as PNG for small file size and retaining the image quality.

That's the easy way, at least.

Thanks. In hindsight, it's probably a better idea to play around with the color adjustment FIRST (perhaps only setting the contrast and brightness) and THEN reduce the amount of colors (if it's a photo or high-color pic, anyway). It'll retain some more details, or at least the details you want.

In GIMP, Image->Mode Grayscale, back to RGB, then Colors->Levels and set the G and B channels to 0.

In GIMP, Colors->Map->Rotate Colors can change the hue of colors like so:

D'aww! :)

One suggestion: I would have turned the brightness down and the contrast up a bit. There's no actual black in it right now but a dark red instead!

Your palette is a little off at the top end, too. You should make sure there's no green or blue at all. I fixed it and also scaled/cropped it to actual VB screen dimensions. See the difference between the brightest red in mine and the kind of purplish pink in yours? It might not be detectable on your monitor, depending on your settings, but I saw it immediately (y'know, after I got done saying "awww, cute widdle puppy" ).
