Not at all- that's Fotopic.... The reduced size images have right click
disabled, because in my experience the results of printing that reduced by
Fotopic, and reduced by me sort of image, are disappointing.. Click on the
'full size' image, and the branding disappears and a much better image is
available. The originals I have are nearly all at least 2500pix in width
some as much as 4000pix, if you need any of those there is a leave me a
message box, ensure you mailbox is large enough ( 2MB per image) and I'll
quite happily send them to you.
They are there for modellers such as yourself, that's why I collected them-
I print them off , scaled to 00 gauge and using long-life inks in the
printer they are superb, and I can change them regularly to make the layout
look fresh. I was careful to maintain the aspect ratio of the original and
on most there is a tiny border around each to be trimmed off after printing.
Click on the image you want to get the larger version, go to file save
and save as a complete webpage (using IE6
The images will be saved in a folder from where you can copy them out
and do what you wish with them.
On a similar subject, does anyone know of a site that has some images
for download of the old posters often found on station buildings. You
know the sort of thing, often advertising "bovrill" and metal polish etc..
Thanks for that comment Chris, They are carefully Photted so as to get the
correct aspect ratio, and perspective, so they should print at any
reasonable scale....be it 'G' or 'N'.. Save the full size image ( right
click enabled on those) as that's the image as I uploaded it- use the one
that Fotopic generates as a preview only. If you need the original leave me
a message via the message box on the front page, but be warned they could be
up to 3MB is size.
There's lots of other stuff like station signs and branding that should help
anyone attempting a modern day layout, or detailing their latest model.
Printing them out using long life inks, and glossy paper gives very
realistic representations of enamelled signs..
Uhmm... err yeah ... I see what you mean about being side-tracked :-)
Thanks for the suggestion, I now have a selection of thumbnails that
should suit the period we're modelling - does anyone have any idea of
the approx size these posters would of been ??
