Just remember that unless he shows memory allocation at the same time or shortly after, it still won't be recommended to make a game using them, unless they are fairly small in data size. Or you could always try looking it up and figuring out how to do it yourself! As Chili says multiple times in the original series, figuring things out from your own research and testing is probably the best way to compliment his tutorials. Don't stop at what he shows you, try new things and see if they work!

I just use them in the beginning because they are simple.

Wait until we learn how to do it the proper way, this tool is aimed for the impatient and people who would like small custom sprites for the first few tutorials.
Understood <insert thumbs up image> :)

Hi!
I'm new here and I wanted to ask what kind of pictures I can use? Because with the one I used it didn't work...
Thanks in advance:)

You have used pyinstaller right? You can use the -w switch to remove the hideous console window.
