Actually, I want to remove this flourish completely.

When I attempted to delete it, there was a small box added to the bottom. 

No, I do not want a new link to a different flourish, as it is uncertain how long they will remain active which brings me back to square one.

There are many more in Atlantic Canada Heritage Properties and NRHP Historic Districts - Contributing Buildings.

If you are an officer in other categories, there most likely are more that need editing.

Gimp - I was going to post about how do you use Gimp to morph plaques, etc.

It was so simple using Photoshop. 

After several failed attempts, saving the pictures to a file only to realize it was unuseable. 

You have to export the file as a .jpg. 

Success is so sweet. :rolleyes:

 

Does anyone know of another "free" program that is easier to use than Gimp?

I have not seen any free program that can cope with Gimp in its full functional range.

 

But you do not need a tunnel drilling machine to open a can of fried beans or the such. For really simple tasks, there are a lot of alternatives that cannot do much, but this simple and fast.

To crop, rotate and resize I use IrfanView. A picture is changed and saved before Gimp is even half way of starting it's first initialization process step. But don't think about morphing or retouching or color corrections (i.e. the latter only the most basic things).

Irfanview, if you only want 'basic' manipulation of images. I have Gimp for the more 'serious' stuff!

irfanview.net/faq.htm

 

For just changing size of already manipulated images I use light image resizer from obviousidea.com (In fact, I've paid to 'upgrade' it!)

I use it as well, however does not have the capacity to morph. At least I have not found it. 

I wonder if I can find the examples I posted about posting a picture of a plaque instead of transcribing it. (this was a few years ago.) :huh:

 

I can't believe I actually found it.

Good for you!!! I've been hyping Faststone for years now. I've tried all the rest, but Faststone's the BEST!

Though I resort to Gimp for cloning/erasing large areas, Faststone does a good job on smaller areas like power lines and such. Other than that I only use GIMP for morphing.

And that's just what T0SHEA was referring to - morphing. Faststone does ALL the rest. Hopefully she'll figure out how to do it with GIMP. I suspect, from an above post, that she already has.:)

My problem - and I guess yours as well - was semantic. In the image processing industry "morphing" means something else than I thought. It is blending two different pictures into one. What I wanted, they call "warping". Once I got that, I found several tools that can do that. I just tried one: https://sourceforge.net/projects/perspectiveimg/ and it did the job quite well.

Exactly!!! Can't imagine why (senility, Alzheimer's), but I completely forgot that warping is the proper term here. We had fallen into using morphing so long ago that warping left my consciousness completely. Thanks for that!!

I'm gonna give PerspectiveImageCorrection a try.

Do this: For each image, copy image address, paste URL into a new tab, the image without the photobucket watermark should appear, save image. Then upload each image to the gallery, copy the LINK ADDRESS for each image then replace each URL on the page with the copied LINK ADDRESS.

I'd do it but I can't edit Ranger Stations.

Foucault Pendulum

Swinging from a 40 foot cable, the 235 pound brass bob on the pendulum swings in the basement of the bank, powered by an electromagnetic device which gives it a tiny nudge on each swing. Installed in about 1978 by <A target="_blank" HREF="http://www.academypendulums.com/" title="Open in new tab" style="text-decoration:none">Academy Pendulums</A>, the cost at that time was a mere $8,000. Some time after its installation a clock face was installed under the pendulum, showing the correct time as the pendulum passed over. The clock no longer works, but the pendulum continues to swing rhythmically back and forth, as it has done for almost forty years.<p>

See a bit of the story of the pendulum below, a news article published in the <i>Last Best News</i> in 2016.<p>

<span style="width:90%;font:italic 300 14px Arial">Jim Bennett stands above the base of the Foucault’s pendulum that he installed in 1978 in First Citizens Bank, now Western Security Bank, in downtown Billings.</span></center><p>

How many people know that the only Foucault’s pendulum in Montana is located in downtown Billings, in the Western Security Bank building?<p>

For that matter, how many people know what a Foucault’s pendulum is?<p>

Basically, it is a simple device that demonstrates that the Earth rotates on its axis. French physicist Leon Foucault (“foo-koh”) debuted his pendulum in 1851 at the Paris Observatory, suspending a 62-pound cannon ball by a 200-foot-long piano wire from the dome of the building. A few weeks later he installed his most famous pendulum in the Pantheon, a public building in Paris.<p>

Pendulums on his design became popular and there are now hundreds of them on display all over the world. The one at Western Security Bank, at North Broadway and First Avenue North, besides being the only one in Montana, is one of just a handful in the United States inside a private business. Almost all the rest are in museums, libraries, planetariums and similar venues.<p>

The pendulum in Billings owes its existence to Jim Bennett, who in 1978 moved his First Citizens Bank into what had been the J.J. Newberry department store at 123 N. Broadway. In the old department store building, Bennett said, there were escalators leading from the ground floor to the selling floor below. But the escalators were out of order and the bank wouldn’t need them anyway.<p>

So, what to do with this big open space in the middle of his new bank? Bennett’s first thought was to cut out a 25-by-25-foot section of the ceiling and install a chandelier.<p>

Then he thought of the Foucault’s pendulum he had seen as a young man. Bennett was born in 1931 in Havre, when his parents were living on a homestead near Logie, 10 miles southeast of Havre. In 1949, the year Bennett graduated from Chinook High School, he was one of 30 Montana delegates who attended the National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago.<p>

<img src="http://lastbestnews.com/wp-content/uploads/Pendulum3-1.jpg" alt="PIC" style="float:left;margin-right:15px;margin-bottom:20px;width:40%;border-radius:10px">
It was his first time out of state, and among the marvels he saw in the metropolis was a Foucault’s pendulum at the Museum of Science and Industry. Almost 30 years later, standing inside his new bank, he thought back to that museum visit.<p>

The only place in the country that installed Foucault’s pendulums then was the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. The academy said it could install one for $8,000. You didn’t have to be a banker to know that sounded like a pretty good deal.<p>

So Bennett had the section of ceiling cut out to accommodate the cable that would hold the pendulum’s bob, or weight. The hollow brass bob weighs 235 pounds and swings on a 40-foot steel cable. The pendulum is kept in motion by means of an electromagnetic device.
