Hi, I figured out how to do this on my "guest" badge finally recently--I used the propeller as the testing code and pasted my hex in there. Kind of a barebones "how to" but should get folks going if they're new to this (like me). This will give you a monochrome picture to put on the badge, if this isn't clear ask questions and I'll try and make this more understandable.
Find a picture you want to use, open it with paint (assuming you're using windows- sorry) go to resize your picture, use pixels, resize, your screen is 128 by 64, so 64 is effectively your limit size, you can force it but your image will be distorted. Save as a BMP.
Open LCD assistant to open (leave all the defaults) the BMP ensure the size is 128 wide by 64 height. What I noticed was that it was changing the height and width to whatever I changed to using paint, if you try and upload that it will distort your image. Go to file, save output, and then open that in a text editor; I'm using notepad++.
Take the hex out of that file, just the hex, and copy and paste it as needed.
