How to convert your gta snapmatic photos into valid big files with AI #1
Hi!
This time i wanna see you how to use your own PC taken pictures.

PART 1 - PREPARING

First at all we must go to the location of the files.

Code:
C:\Users\\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\

Then we should open one of the files and in a hex Editor like this one (hxD), if you like terminal then this python version should be good: PyHex

My tutorial will use hxD, is fully working with Windows 10 latest builds  Biggrin

Lets open hxD and go to location. copy all files named PGTArandom-number into another folder.

it should be like this:

then change ALL FILES extension to .jpg

but.. it will be boring really?

then open CMD and run this command in the directory you are:

Code:
rename *.* *.jpg

i recommend you copy it into your desktop so you will run:

Code:
cd Desktop/folder
rename *.* *.jpg

PART 2 - FILE FIXING

Here comes the technical part of the game  Biggrin

open hxD, then open one of the files renamed.

it should see like this:

but ¿what is that? Confused

well, is hex-coded text with their traslation to plain-text.

we should remove the header (extra-header) that GTA app adds to normal images. ¿but how to recognize it?

easy, first lets take a look to this normal file header:

header contains 4 specific characters. so... let's see first if you will find the header Biggrin

done?

yeah!

this is the extra header:

let's select it and remove using Supr key (del key in english keyboards).

then save it and voilá!

a working JPEG FILE!!!  Biggrin

PART 3 - Deep Learning Enhancement

wait... we converted the files but is too little  Sad we cannot use it in our mega poster for our big room.

we... there is a solution  Biggrin AI Enhancement (enlarger)!!!

there are several tools for this but i gonna show you this online tool:

imglarger. let's search for it, open the images (once by time, do not try several tries without reloading the page or error will stops you from continue).

just load our files and then use it and select the scale mode to convert them and VOILÁ. big nice pictures of our work as GTA photographer!

Enjoy!

note: i will wait for your feedback
