Graphics Program

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a fairly inexpensive programs that can be purchased for use with Windows 10? I just want to take scans of pictures and manipulate the size of the image to produce 1/72 scale decals. Photoshop is great but its very expensive.

That depends... are you looking to do things like aircraft insignia (simple graphics) or complex images, like editing a photo to turn into a decal?

 

Photoshop Elements in only $99 and does go on sale, but that is more geared towards editing photos.

As for manipulating the size, a copier can do that- just set to reduce or enlarge appropriately

If I recall correctly, Microsoft will be releasing a new version of MS Paint (probably named differently) in the near future.

The Tactical Air Command shield on the acetate test sheet in my post there was inserted into my drawing of the tail code and serial number using the "insert reference drawing" in the Draftsight program I link there. You can print in different scales once you get the size right. Two great things about that program. 1) Its vector-based, so you don't get jagged, pixelated printouts like you do with low-cost or free photo editors. 2) ITS FREE! :D
