Hey thanks you two! im glad you like it :D ! Sixcyl, you and Atom are totally right about the black borders, i dont like them either but i dont have a programme like photoshop to edit them, and being honest, removing them takes even a lot more time :/ but Sixcyl please dont bother, i dont want you to waste your time doing it.

I was too slow, but add my compliments to Mike and Jean-Marc's [:thumbs]
Spain in the 40s and 50s, like several other countries in Europe, was pretty much an open market; you can see from this - and other period Spanish films - that not only American, but French, British, German and Italian cars were freely available (except for the war years). I think the same applied to Portugal, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the Scandinavian countries, in fact any country in Western Europe which had either no motor industry at all or only a relatively small one.

Very nice collection, AdriŠn!

You don't need to buy a programme to remove the black borders, there is one freely available which is easy to use: IrfanView. Very interesting is the possibility to capture and store images by just pressing one key (good for quickly making captures from a film) and after that you can use the batch conversion to cut off the borders from all pictures at once.

@ Chris: Open market may be not really adequate... Yes, lots of different makes weer available, but if 'm informed correctly, import-taxes on cars were quite exorbitant. Only the very rich could afford a (Spanish built) car, only the very, very rich could afford a (foreign) luxury car. ypical for that situation are the many pre-civil-war cars still in use, and the many taxis (all black cars with red stripes and wheels), compared to privately owned cars. A few years ago I met somebody who got a special permit to buy a 2CV in 1956 (we were on holiday in Spain with our 1956 2CV), only because he really needed to have a car since he was a doctor (general practitioner) in Puigcerdŗ, a small town in the Pireneas. Back then, he was the ONLY person in town who owned a car...
In Holland in the late 50s things came back to normal (after the war there was oly about 10% of the cars left) and middle class people could afford to buy a Volkswagen, Simca, Traction or Morris, and even American Fords were quite affordable, since they were made in Amsterdam...

Fair comment, Mike; I guess what I meant was a level playing field, that is to say that in Spain every imported car was equally disadvantaged.

This can be done also in XnView (which AdriŠn has). But cropping these pics will mean re-encoding to jpeg, which mean even more quality loss. Such operation should be done before jpeg conversion.
And about taking time, XnView has an "auto crop" feature...
