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 .
You have to edit the image on Gallica.
Follow me step by step (this is my secret
Take the same image as a sample... http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b8426851j/f16.item
Step 1 -
Click on the ZOOM
icon/button on the upper left of the screen
(located just bellow the beginning of the title of the book). After clicking on it, you will see a very small plate... That's OK.
Step 2 -
Now, click on the icon/button represented by a MAGNIFYING GLASS WITH A PLUS SIGN
(at the upper right-hand side of the screen
). This is a zoom in function ("Outil d'agrandissement" in French
). Click just one time!
Step 3 -
To centralize the image, if necessary
, you can move the image by double-clicking on the picture, holding and then dragging it in any direction (that's the way it works in a laptop).
Step 4 -
Click on the button/icon that says "Selectionner l'outil Selection"
(on the upper right of the screen
). Click just one time on it!
Now it's time to edit the image.
Step 5 -
After step 4, by moving your cursor over the image, it will change to a cross. Select any point on the image and them double-click on it, hold and drag the cursor/cross to cut/edit the image. A message box will appear every time you release the cursor. You can continue editing your image by closing the message box/window (FERMER = CLOSE)
. Take a look at the small white squares
on the borders of your editing... Double-click on any of them and drag it to enlarge your picture (move up, down, left or right).
When you are finally satisfied with your work, take a look at the bottom of the message box/window... You will see the following message:
Dans une résolution supérieure (format plus grand, meilleure lisibilité): Cliquez ici
Click on "Cliquez ici".
You will get a much larger image with much higher quality!
After getting the hang of it, you'll do this in no time.
