In this post I will explain how I created the dithered images I use on black and white displays, as shown below:

The original.jpg ...
Convert the image to gray scale:
convert original.jpg \\
-set colorspace Gray -separate -average \\
original_gray.png
Convert an image to gray scale and dither it:
convert original.jpg \\
-set colorspace Gray -separate -average \\
-ordered-dither h6x6a \\
original_dither_h6x6a.png
Conver an image to gray scale and dither it (fine):
convert original.jpg \\
-set colorspace Gray -separate -average \\
-ordered-dither h4x4a \\
original_dither_h4x4a.png
Conver an image to gray scale and dither it (fine) and crop to the right resolution:
convert original.jpg \\
-set colorspace Gray -separate -average \\
-ordered-dither h4x4a \\
-thumbnail 264x176^ -gravity center -extent 264x176 \\
original_dither_h4x4a_crop.png

The final step is to create the array of bits:

convert original.jpg \\
-set colorspace Gray -separate -average \\
-ordered-dither h4x4a \\
-thumbnail 264x176^ -gravity center -extent 264x176 \\
original_dither_h4x4a_crop.xbm

Resulting original_dither_h4x4a_crop.xbm:

#define original_dither_h4x4a_crop_width 264
#define original_dither_h4x4a_crop_height 176
static char original_dither_h4x4a_crop_bits[] = {
