Right, today I've had to resize most of the scans since most of them were 5-15MB, I managed to get the big file sizes to around 2MB at average.

They've now been reuploaded, hopefully they should load faster, they're still in good quality and still easy to read. :)

I've downloaded the rest of the scans today, I'll be file size shrinking these ones tomorrow and adding them onto the site tomorrow evening.

The manual scans for Quattro Adventure I'll download another time as I need a small break. :v2_dizzy_clapping:
How's your scanner getting on?

All the scans so far are now on the site. Links to the pages are on the first post of this thread.

As I said before, I will sort out the Instruction Manual for Quattro Adventure another time.

Again, thanks for your help. :)

I don't think you have these in you collection yet, unfortunately the two kick snax covers are fairly small, but the posters are a good size

Thanks, van duff. :)

Like I said before, we already have a page for the posters here
http://yolkfolk.com/site/page.php?id=23

You're one of Fantasy World (without logo) we don't have on the site yet, I'm kind of wondering where that kind of poster originally came from, since I don't recall the Dizzy Collection providing free posters like Dizzy's Excellent Adventures did. :v2_dizzy_confused2:

I will be updating the pages with new scans later on in the week. :)

Nice. :) And yeah, sorry they were so big and grainy. I might've shaved a bit more off if I used jpeg instead of png, and this printer really isn't for scanning anything glossy it's just a document scanner. We really can't afford new hardware for quite some time, and even if we did get a new scanner I'm not sure I'm up for another 3 weeks of constant scanning every single game lol.

Now worries, I'm strangely having fun resizing the big images. X) :v2_dizzy_clapping:

But seriously though, I wish there was something I could do to repay you and many other scan senders. :)

The Quattro Adventure Manual scans are now on the site.

Totally done with the scans, for now. Whew! Got a Spectrum box of Crystal Kingdom Dizzy on its way and after I've had a nice long rest from scanning I'll add some scans from the magazines.
