Cheers , was having trouble taking away or erasing stuff.
Tried this , nothing happens
Its where there is a fork in the line , if you fill it in it will fill it with black to the next station up the line .
Ah yes, for the fork in the line bits I use the Free Select tool as mentioned above to remove the bits that I don't want to fill in!
That's what I'm.struggling with . How do you do that ?
I'll drop a series of screenshots to show you!
1. Use the Fuzzy Select Tool to select your area:
2. Choose the Free Select Tool, and click on "Subtract from the current selection"
3. Start outlining the bit you want removed
4. Press Enter and voila
Cheers , that helped a lot .
Mine is very pixelated and when i converted to PDF it was a black screen
The problem I'm having is that to import it and not have it pixelated I'm having to up the resolution on the import screen from 100 px per inch to say around 300 which has the result of making the image huge (14,000 x 20,000 pixels ). When exported as a png that's obviously massively unwieldy and if I try to export as a pdf I have a similar issue to route101 in that all I have, in my case, is a green pdf (same colour as I've chose for covered areas by the by).
Can't help but feel I'm going wrong somewhere or other!
Managed to do it finally , few lines in South London unsure about . Anyone know how to make it less pixalated when zoomed in ?
Yeah that's the problem, the GB network is massive and hence the file is massive too! You could split it into several sections if that's your thing, you always have the flexibility in doing so.
Gotta say I never export in pdf though, I do it in jpg with maximum quality, though albeit normally on photoshop. I did try it in GIMP and it seems to work though
Looks great! As above, I usually export it in jpg at the maximum quality, that should work
Will try it in JPG ! Cheers
Ha! Well as long as that's the expected behaviour I'll muddle through. I was more concerned I was doing something wrong as I'm a total novice at this sort of thing!! Thanks
I've updated mine! Lots of stuff in London, including the entire London Underground network* as follows:
* excluding the chord from Rickmansworth to Croxley, ain't nobody got the time and effort for that!
Also Hong Kong and Singapore, just for the fun of it why not
Following on from my post on December 1 last year, I have now returned to the UK to complete my route coverage. I now have seven stretches of track to complete.
Tulse Hill to East Croydon
Motspur Park to Chessington South.
Surbiton to Hampton Court
Surbiton to Effingham Junction
Selhurst to West Croydon
Balham to Epsom Downs via West Croydon
Thornton Heath to Caterham
This Thursday 20th September it's my 65th Birthday. Part of the celebration will be completing these lines. Then I will have covered all available passenger lines on the Mainland British Railway (not NI) System.
Looking back, I don't begrudge a single penny in expense: a single mile of the journey; a single second of the time. Each time I have ridden on new rails there has been a tinge of excitement.
In spite of many problems there are with the rail system today, we, in the UK have a rail network to be proud of. Most probably I have met hundreds if not thousands of rail workers all of whom have been courteous, polite, friendly, chatty, and helpful.
The lovely lady in Troon, The guard up in Chester who gave me his badge when I was seven or eight years old, and the platform staff, who have held up trains for me by a few seconds, so I could make a connection, all come to mind. Illegal now, and most probably back then, the drivers who invited me to cab ride with them. Brilliant people all of them.
Today more than in yesteryear, fellow passengers annoy me. Feet on seats, obviously cheating on fares, bags on seats preventing others from sitting next to them or sitting in an isle seat to keep the window seat next to them empty. Mobile phones are a nuisance, and swearing! How fellow humans degrade themselves.
One thing the rail network needs more than HS2 and electrification is coaches, coaches, coaches, and longer platforms in lots of places. There is nothing quite so soul destroying to my mind than to see a train from the south west going to the midlands and way beyond with 4 or 5 coaches, full to the gunnels by the time it gets to Plymouth. A two or three coach train (as I experienced recently) from Manchester to Cardiff.
My first train ride, I was told, was from home in Lelant to St Ives. then to St Erth and Penzance. Home is no longer in Lelant, and indeed Lelant is just a requeststop these days (hence my nickname), I still get a thrill when I return home and pass Truro and see our cathedral. I still think St Erth is the best little main line station in the network, and my home line, the St Ives branch the best in the entire bloody world. (wipes away metaphorical tear)
I'll post on Thursday my final coverage of the network. If you are travelling the lines listed above on Thursday, and see a youthful(ish) 65 year old with a huge grin on his face, give me a smile huh!
Update: 21/09/18 Route coverage completed. See log in Trip reports thread.
What program would be best to do this on a Mac? I'm assuming GIMP isn't available for Mac?
I cleared Sudbury and Braintree branches today. All of East Anglia completed.
I cleared Brighton to Arundel Jct & Horsham to Ewell West.
Today, I cleared
Ewell West to Epsom.
Leatherhead to Guildford.
Effingham Jct to New Guildford Line Jct.
Not a good day for South West Trains. Lots of delays and cancellations.
Probably done for this year now but I've now covered most of the UK except North Lincolnshire (The land where nothing connects) ,the far North lines to Klye of Lochhalsh, Wick and Thurso, Airbies and Manchester Airport.
Shrewsbury to Pwllheli
Dovey Junction to Aberystwyth
Gimp-2.10 is available for Mac's I have it on mine.
Latest : Leeds to York via Harrogate.
