Code to draw Graphic on nokia 1202 LCD (STE2007 driver)

I've bought a nokia 1202 LCD recently (very nice one, have their pinout ready to use, micro SD headers and a regulator). I've tried hard to find an library for it, and finally found one that's usable. Now printing text is no longer a problem, but graphic is one big mess. Can anyone help me with it? I've already make the image into an array, but stuck with the "display the logo" part. Apparently, the number did something, but I don't know what. Everytime I tried to change it, the screen output something different. I've included the library (which I downloaded it somewhere on the net) and the code I've modified. Thanks in advance, and sorry for my terrible english.

Are Pixels square? Answered

I'm trying to scale a graphic I downloaded from the internet. The program I'm using (HP Photosmart Studio) tells me that it's 426 x 1024 pixels, which gives me an aspect ratio of 0.42:1. But in inches, it's 5.00 x 14.22, which has an aspect ratio of 0.35:1. So either I'm blowing the math, or I'm losing my mind, or pixels aren't square. (Why, in the name of anything at all, woud pixels not be square?)

Raster Graphic Editors (e.g. photoshop) Don't Like Filling

I've been having a bit of a dilemma with raster graphics editors such as Photoshop and GIMP. In either of the two programs, when I draw a solid line, it automatically fades the edges. This normally wouldn't bug me, except I need to fill in these areas. Whenever I do so, the area I fill in doesn't do so entirely because of these faded edges. Does anybody know how to make either Photoshop or GIMP stop doing this and fill in the entire area?
