Retro Desktop Round 1 -- Mac OS 6

Meeting 0x05 - 2020/10/08

Using two different versions of GraphicConverter under Mac OS 9, as well as the Mac System 6 extension Backdrop, Millsaps Computer Club members Celina, Edan, Jesse, and Joel were able to create beautiful black and white images for the 1988 desktop of Mac OS 6 (from images they found on Google).

Inspired by Jesse doing it on his fancy shmanshy real Macintosh SE: Macintosh SE 1 - Splatoon Macintosh SE 2 - Noragami

Jesse ran (and crashed) Sheepshaver many times during the meeting to make this actually happen bc converting to PICT and/or MacPaint is basically impossible without doing it under Mac OS Sheepshaver Screenshot

First up was Joel with a nice beach scene:
