The pictures in this folder represent a new breed in the ST market: picture
scanners. While we were at the World of Atari show, we were able to scan a few
things with Navarone's scanner (which retails for $1239.95). Basically, it is
a Cannon scanner with Navarone's software and interface. With a 1 meg machine
we were able to scan 1/4 page of one of our covers (the Postscript file was too
long to fit on the disk: 180,000K arced). If you would like to get this file,
just send a disk, a self-address stamped envelope, and a dollar to our mailing
address. Please note: you need a laser printer to print the file, however, it
is truly amazing.
Both color and monochrome users can view the pictures. Color users can view
the monochrome pictures (ones with a .TN3 ending) because of a special
conversion process that the TINY program uses. One file, which was originally
color (JOUST.TN1), was converted to monochrome with a special program (LOOKER,
which does a special conversion to retain the complexity of color pictuers).
The color Joust picture was scanned with the IMG scanner from Seymour-Radix,
based in Texas. The logo was scanned with the Navarone scanner. The degree of
quality can definitely be seen between the two, however, the IMG scanner
retails in the $100 price range, while the Navarone scanner retails in the
$1250 price range.
