Photo VGA Display and Distortion

Photos require a color palette and a file that maps locations of every pixel. Storing these files onto an FPGA allows easy photo manipulation. Research conducted for a multi-photo build required the Nexys 4 DDR FPGA. Using the on-board VGA output, display was implemented using a VGA cable to monitor. The two photos stored on the BRAM were given the capability to display different color palettes, as well as encryption and decryption methods that were studied to better understand photo manipulation.
