Standard ZX81 screens should use SCR format.
You mean convert screenshots to spectrum screens?

I mean SCR format represents screens of 256x192 pixels, so it's appropriate for both Spectrum and ZX81 standard screens.

Should a "house style" be defined for the attributes when converting the screenshots, i.e. bright on or off?

Bright off.

Thomas has been already generating ZX81 screens this way.

I expect there is, if that's the format people are using, it's just the one I use doesn't. Another option would be to use the ZX81 emulator ROM in a spectrum emulator, then you can just directly make a .scr file but that's making loading things rather more fiddly than it needs to be.

Oh you star, that'd be great.

Good to see the site back, last time I looked it was only on some wayback thingy.

No problem, I'll get on to it when I have some spare time (What, 2026? Ed.)

Just wanted to add that 2014 has been taken. The state of things so far:

@Nomad 2003
serbalgi 2007 done
@Kweepa 2008
@PeterJ 2010
@Spud 2016
Guesser 2009 done
MykeP 2014 (thanks Myke)
@Lee Spoons 2015
R-Tape/Hikoki 2013 done yet to be added

We're all busy so no worries if you've stalled, no rush, but if you don't think you'll make any further progress then just send me what you have so far.

Or if you want to contribute then pick an unclaimed year and announce it here!
