Classic Coins, I appreciate your input. I noted that the text on the 10% compressed images needed to be redone. It was not too much work and I fixed the text. I also adjusted the 2 images that you noted (32L and 56L). I have had to rotate a lot of the Chase images but not too many of the "other" images. Piecing together the images is always a challenge to keep the correct aspect. A poll for the compression preferred would be helpful and interesting. Here are the two redone charts for the 10% compression. I am still not sure where I will post the charts when completed. I think I prefer the 10 per line over the 5 per line aspect. I have decided to start a new post for my charts.

Here is a repost of the 20% compression charts for plate 0. Take note that the 20% compression charts are scaled at 80% to fit constraint limits.

Don, I had thought about that but I did not want to cause you a lot of work. I have not had any involvement in the 3c database and not even sure who is working on that. Just working on 8 plates, there will be over 40 charts (80+ if I do 10% and 20% compression), plus 16 guide dot charts. So that will be close to 100 charts. And then trying to control any changes to the charts... It would be a lot of work for you unless there would be a way for me to upload the charts. Not to mention that it may be a 3+ month long project.

No worries, I can support whatever you would like to do. I'll set it up so you can upload them, give me a day to get it in place and I'll send you a link. If possible, please email me 1-2 of the existing images you already have (at full resolution) so I can design the page layouts properly.

jaxom100, Nice work updating the alignment in the charts! And starting a new topic is a great idea.

Just my opinion, but I think posting both 10% and 20% compression charts for this project would be unnecessary. I would recommend picking one compression percentage for the whole project.

Maybe a poll for compression size (10% or 20%) would be a good idea. With both charts, there would be a total of 112 charts for the 8 plates. It is not a lot of work to size down the 20% charts to the 10% charts so the work is not the issue. It is more how they will be displayed. Then there is the issue of the misplaced reliefs. There are none on the first plate 0 that I did. Should I add an extra column or row for the misplaced reliefs? Pull out the C relief stamps from the B relief charts? There are a lot of variables in this project.

I use 10%, 20% just isn't enough. As far as your other dilemma goes, there is no reason why you can't just put an entire pane on a single chart, arranging each position as they are on the plate.

Wouldn't that make it much harder to plate a stamp if the entire sheet is on a plate and not divided by relief? The idea is to split up the sheet so there is much less to look through. It never even occurred to me to make up the entire sheet on one chart. Any other thoughts on that idea?

I've normally used 10% to but that doesn't make it right...just my preference.

The idea of the charts has been scrapped. .

I got your email. I was told not to use the images. Please remove the charts that were made. Thanks. I do not think the Chase images will have the quality to do the same thing.

I removed the images but am letting the rest of the thread stand so folks can understand what happened and why the effort failed.
