Very well done...Can that be done on your average printer??Here's a badly stained one that I replaced two or three years ago. I scanned the original, did the detail work and the paper color on the computer, printed it on card stock (matt) and cut it out with a circle cutter. The original is on the bottom, the new one on top. The goal was to match the aged color. Not too bad.
I know who to call when I need to try it. Are there any good or suitable FREE editing programs available??Yeah, just a run of the mill three color, single color cartridge printer. You need a fairly good editing program, capable of "cloning" which acts like cut and paste, but other wise nothing special.

I never tried it. If it will allow you to magnify the image and manipulate it small pixel sized areas, it should do the jobWindows "Paint" program may have all the basics you need to get started. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles but there's no steep learning curve either. I think you can re-size, edit, flip and manipulate images enough to do what usually needs to be done...it just won't be "fast". What do you think S.B.?
Yeah it's zinc. That's an E&A Ingraham beehive made between 1852-56. It was one of eight clocks that I rescued from a total hack.Jay - is that paper? Looks like metal. If so, the dial house might be a better option.
Bruce: This is to update the reference to FotoFlexer. Apparently, it's been "upgraded" and now has only very basic tools.

Thanks Rod. My mistake. The review statesI use GIMP and it does indeed have layers...
- Lacks layer grouping, adjustment layers, and some other common Photoshop elements.
Hi Bruce,How do you like GIMP? How's the learning curve with it?
I'm sure it is more than sufficient to quickly properly re-size and clean up a dial image file.
