Petz Imager Edit

Petz Imager, created by Ricky K. of TUPP, is a simple DOS program that generates a .bmp file of the Pick A Pet image from a specific .pet file.[2]

Using it involves dragging the desired .pet file onto the tool's Desktop shortcut; the .bmp file will then be generated in the directory where the .pet file is.

It can be downloaded at TUPP here.

Petz Pic Factory Edit

Petz Pic Factory is created by Nicholas Sherlock of Sherlock Software. It generates .gif files (with transparent backgrounds) of the Adoption Center images from all the .pet and .baby files that are in the same directory as it.[3]

Simply move the tool's .exe file to the directory where all the .pet and/or .baby files are, then double-click the .exe file.
