Arrow Porter Manual moved

I re-arranged my bedroom server a bit so now the tipo porter manual can be found at http://tipo.kollektiivi.com

Re: Porter Manual moved

I am in the process of converting the entire thing to PDF - including converting the jpg's back to text and image so it will be text searchable.

Are the images you are using the original scans?

no. the ones one the site are processed (straightened, contrast fixed, cropped and compressed), but the originals arent much better resolutionwise..

the original scans are here: http://ziggy.tky.hut.fi/tipo/original_scans.rar

I will take it down due to traffic restrictions so be quick
If downloading is slow then they have already put the restrictions to action.

the file is about 150mb

oh and good luck with the pdf thingy, that would be excellent!!

Thanks for that - I will let you know when I have completed it.

If you PM me your address I will send you a CD with the PDF, the original text & jpg files for your web site.

Re: Porter Manual moved

Hi

I would like to suggest to you something. In one of your notes before you’ve complained about shortage of bandwidth due to enormous download of scanned original "Porter manual" pages. There’s no wander because almost every file is close to 1 Mb. Multiply number of users with size of files!
Can you decrease pictures dpi? Right now they’re at 200 dpi, so to say “right out of scanner”. It’s usual for pictures posted on Internet to be 72 dpi. For example: page 143 is 1,1 Mb. If you reduce that to 72 dpi you’ll get 0,6 Mb (if you keep the size of page) or if you do it in Photoshop, it might fall down to 0,2 Mb (page is lot smaller but information is still there).
I think that your computer won’t be taken as much as before by fellow "Tipo lovers" and it would be easier to download all those pages for all others.

Dragan
