Here is a guide to create pixel pefect logos in Paint Tool.
First off, open the image you want to add to your game in Photoshop.
You now need to change the image size so it fits into paint tool.
To do this go to Image/Image Size. If your image is wider than it is tall, change the image width to either 128 or 256. Or if it taller than it is wide, change the height instead. Make sure you tick 'Constrain Proportions' so you image doesnt get squashed.
Now you need to simplify the image so it doesnt have multiple tones of one colour.
To do this go to Image/ Image Mode/ Indexed Colour.
Now change the palette to 'Local (Adaptive)'.
Then change the amount of colours to how ever many colours you want to simplify your image to.
In my case, I will use 2 (Black and Yellow).
You will now need to add a pixel grid. If you are using Photoshop CS5, you can skip this part, as Photoshop CS5 automatically adds a grid when you zoon in far enough. So scroll down to Step 5
Firstly go to View/ Show/ Grid.
If your grid doesnt wrap around 1 pixel, go to Edit/ Preferences/ Guides, Grids & Slices.
Then change the Settings for 'Gridline Every' and 'Subdivisons' both to '1'.
Now press Ctrl+R to show the ruler, then right click the ruler and set it to pixels. These numbers will represent the numbers in Paint Tool, The X axis being the top ruler, Y being the side ruler.
Now simply copy the image across using a 1 pixel brush and the fill tool in PT.
To use these images, copy the image into photoshop, and simply add the grid, and zoom and copy across

The white is there as the background, this will not need to be copied across
The black is there as the background, this will not need to be copied across
