What are you looking to do with the JPEG? Technically it's already binary, though it sounds like you're wanting to convert it to a different format.

Aplogies, i should've been clearer.

Ive recentley bought a machine (old model, company that makes it is no longer running) that i am going to use to add a nice touch to some work i sell. The file needed for the machine to print on to my work needs to be a .bin file. The image i want printed is in a jpg format.

I hope this makes sense and youll have to please excuse my ignorance regarding file types etc.

Is this even possible?

Ah, OK, so this is some sort of graphic-producing piece of machinery. It's probably possible to convert formats, but we'll need to know more about the machine. Many manufacturers tried to use proprietary, non-open formats to lock users into their interface software, so you get generic things like .bin files instead of meaningful descriptions.

That sounds exactly what theyve done. Ill be using it to place my signature onto paperwork that accompanies my product. I think a niceley designed signature would look better than my scribble.

 

The machine takes an SD card.

Can you provide specifics about the machine? If anyone is able to help, they'll need manufacturer, model number, revision code, et c.

You will need to find the documentation for the device. It will tell you what file formats it supports.  It may be as simple as renaming the .jpg file to .bin but I am hoping that you at least tried that first. IF not, then it may be some other format renamed to .bin or it may be proprietary.  There are lots of free image editing tools that will output files into lots of obscure formats.

 

I think you need to find that manual or documentation to start.  Otherwise, keep guessing at formats and sizes (they can also limit by filesize and/or dimensions) until you get lucky.
