Hello, times ago I made some synoptic charts of medals  for other forum where i have the power. Was a very little forum of WW1. Anyway i didn't publish its here , as less most of them.

Take it as an artist work better than an expert work. 

Thanks for your attention.

You do beautiful work, Boris.

How do you prepare the medal images to put them on the background of your choice? That's the thing that slows me down, putting them on a black background for my website. I'd love to have a better way that adding the black by hand!

Hello Megan, thanks. I know your web, congratulations for your effort listing the medals of the all world, it is very difficult to make correctlly..

I think I understood you question. I use a program as photoshop to manage the image, then:

You open the image of the medal, can be a photo or a internet image.. Then You can use the program possibilities.

 Normaly. I first trim the medal out of the background. This give you a layer of the medal contour exempt of the original background. In another layer down you can put any background you want.

This is the easier way, it depend the skill you have with the program or programs.

Sorry but I can't make a visual tutorial cause my main computer is kaput, I am using now my second computer, that is too weak for

those problems. I hope I'm explained me correctly.

More from the forum historry: the espirirt of this forum, for my side was mainly to get the cooperation between the spanish people, even soem nacionalist catalans as Poilu was a great forum man. But this is impossible at last. The individualism that come many times from ignorance, even from celousy brake all wisdom. And as I don't like the "Black Legend", I have to say that is a human race (not especie, race), fault. 

But with the spaniards is a law. And the people that work get tired of the people than don't work. Very few times aws a collective work, as you do text, I do grafics. At last forum was dead for this reason mainly. Even spanish of german or english families were this way. Even more than the other. You can think in the moral conclusion. But maybe it is too late to change, tiem of the "tercios viejos" and the spanish own thinking have dead with God. Now we are as stupid as we can.

Other start was in the democratic uses that is clear, don't go with the spanish character. Razon: It is as we understand it nowadays a greek and angloxason discovery. Maybe the formal democracy is thing of French and USA revolution, and the parlamentary-king way exclusive of english, than not of irish. But the spanish tradition is democratic "per se", not formal but go inside some way, this 

explain the peninsular war, that was really a civil war and the civil war of 1936. is the medieval principles, one of all equal to the king, and alltogheter more than him. this is the problem that have Carlos V with the communeros than don`t be too happy with the imperial politic, for castillia. They were all nobel, but was the equivalent to the people of nowadays. Maybe if they don't loose the war, Spain would be now as the protestant countries, plenty of work and money but that d'ont have a clear politic idea of europe because for they is a europe "Against" thna a clear idea, apart the money and more money. Even the french with "la grander" and the "revolution" just think of money. This is history, not politic at all.

Sorrry for the speach I go ON.

Boris, if you ever need any 'raw materials' medal images, please ask - you'd be welcome to the source images I have here on my hard drive.

I use PaintShop Pro for image handling. I had a play yesterday and I have identified a quicker method for making images for my website than hitherto (but only when done on a large original and then reduced, it still needs extra work if I want the full-size image on a black background for something!).

Hello Megan 

Thanks very much for your ofert.i will use it the way i'll explain.

 

Yes, I know paintshop and i had it for sometime but I changed the system two to wo times followed and then expire the license and I don't renoved it. It was as less five years ago and i don't remember how it works. But in all the draw programs you have layers and some tool to trim by hand (automatically is near to impossible. Then in photoshop, that is the program i use now the first layer is blocked in the begginin, if you d'ont  unblock this layer all foreground trims are going to be black and not colourless as you want. Then you need to unblock this layer. Paste the image and trim.

Can you get photoshop program? if not I am not doing nothing in especial know, you can send me  any image(s) you want and I can help you in your web-page.
