Meaning if I were to provide coordinates and a colour for each individual pixel e.g.(7,12, #767963), specify a pixel size for the entire canvas, can I make a picture from it? Which program has this function? Whether to extract these details or reverse-engineer your own custom picture made from pixels?

  • Depends on your exact needs, but probably ImageMagickDrawing -- IM v6 Examples

    I don't think you need any software, except perhaps a text editor. It's possible to code a bitmap image by hand. See this link

  • The output of a scanner ( or even a fax machine) is a series of colour and brightness levels for every unit (pixel) on the page, following a pre-determined scan line pattern called a raster.
