1st. Sorry for necro'ing the thread.
2nd. Sorry for partially hijacking the thread.

I've decided to try and go this route to get a full set of cards, but I can't seem to find any of the images.
I've found a collection of .pdf's and have downloaded all of them. (A big thank you to everyone that made them)
I can't seem to extract any of the images from them. Any help would be appreciated.

ps. those cards look great.

Grab a program called Foxit Phantom PDF--its free. Open each .PDF and Print them as a different .PDF. Open those .PDF files in Photoshop. Remove all white area from each card sheet, and then create a New File at 300 dpi that is 2.49"x 3.74"--the size of the Printer Studio Bridge-sized deck. Use Guides or Grid lines to copy off each card face, pasting them in turn over the New File at the exact center. Tidy up the background, if necessary, and Save As each card individually. Total time necessary: 2 hours. If I had any uppers left I'd do it myself.

I do have these made up (the image is one in a gallery)--they're Printerstudio Bridge Template-fit Monster Cards. The thing is, they're fit with my redaction stuff which edited them on various things like the changing of anachronisms to the 12-15th centuries (such as Zombie).

I tried everything in the post above, but everything I load is Low resolution. I've never used photoshop before and don't own a copy of it, so I tried GIMP. The image properties say they are 300dpi, but aren't when uploaded to printerstudio. I think I've figured it out.

ps. should I make a new thread?

If someone fixed the images that don't match why not upload it here? Print ready and all.
