Art

I know it is a fairly new challenge, but any of you have a hint on "Art"? (Misc. challenge) for a 20 point challenge, I feel like I shouldn't be this stumped. I have tried going through the code of the image, only to find It was made in PS and such, so I went from there with photoshop yet I have found nothing. Any help is appreciated!

  • having troubles too:

    i binwalked it, and got 2 zip-compressed files, which is maybe sth totally normal for png files?
    i wrote a script which gave each color a letter, then i tried some basic decipher stuff like ceasar - but then again i noticed that the pattern of the letters/colors doesnt look like it could resemble language

    It's 100% normal for PNG files to show up in binwalk as Zlib compressed files, since that's the compression algorithm the PNG format uses.

  • Stucked here too...hint on any direction in wich to go ?

  • also stuck, tried to count distinct colors with python, looks like there's 18-19 of them, doesn't even amount to alphabet.

    maybe it's a flag like a country flag? but colors doesn't resemble any known flags.

    a nudge in a right direction would be greatly appreciated...

  • This is a really simple challenge once you know what it's about. I can only say that in the world there are many programming languages, even crazy ones, go look for them!

  • thanks! solved in a second!

  • Great hint : :+1. Same as above

  • I just finished this puzzle a minute ago. JChris's hint is spot on. Possibly into spoiler territory. That being said, you still have to figure out how to extract the flag so maybe not such a spoiler after all :-D

  • i laughed and laughed and laughed after i completed this

  • Thanks for the spoiler lol.

    Have the flag but it says it's incorrect, is there something extra to do with it?

  • still i stuck . i do not know in iam in right way or not ? i try find color number

  • I have to say, this is a very esoteric challenge to me. I never would have got this without a clue. I forgot about "Art" for awhile, & thought it was Stego category challenge.

  • Im really stuck I tried all of the possible hints about the photo...
    Help me please

  • Nevermind... owned.

  • I cannot find a tool to read the image without returning invalid characters. I know what the image is, should I get a compiler from GitHub?
