Ian, Paul, Cath and Keith... Thanks for your contributions!

Keith... If you want, you can enlarge those pictures you find at Gallica.

Here's a sample (after some editing to re-size it):

Zouave - ACG Forums - General Staff -
Please , can you tell how to get exactly an image of this quality ?
I have this image from " gallica.bnf.fr "
- Fort E. - Officier d'Ordonnance de l'Empereur - 1812 -
But 35.0 Ko and 512 x 729 pixels .
instead of your picture : 232 Ko - 1224 x 1280 pixels .
Do you know what is the file " *.highres "
on " gallica.bnf.fr " to download the pictures ?
Thank you very much for your answer .

My very dear Zouave, many thanks for that information.

To be honest, I can't "see" the image you've posted, due to Public Library Restrictions (!), but I have to confess that the images I've posted recently, from Gallica, have already been made smaller by my good self - hence the reason why I always try and provide the original Gallica URL, so that others may re-download them, at their proper size, if they so wish.

(My humble apologies to anyone who maybe frustrated or annoyed by this, but I only keep and collect medium to smaller Images, in order to squeeze more on each Image CD - a false economy, some will no doubt say, and one I quite possibly, may later, very much regret!)
