Amtix 4k ,High Definition scanning underway
« on: 13:17, 07 September 17 »
        Hi Guys,
                 Got an expensive haul on ebay of 17 issues of Amtix , I am now pushing through the scanning at breakneck speed, done 4 issues last night and got 4 scanners running so might get them all done by the end of the weekend!  Still need to find 17 and a better issue 4 (has the page with the waterloo review cut out due to the back issue coupon being on the other side  and 7 that  has some water damage but is ok just not great condition.  If anyone can sell ,lend or scan

Oh and have Issue 0 scanned .

Find them in the usual place ,look under user zzapmort on the internet archive and type amtix or use the link below:

Thanks so much for taking the effort to do this.
I know what a massive effort high-quality scanning is.

Amtix was my favourite mag back in the day, so I'm very excited to check this out!

Thanks Ervin ,
                   Issues 0-8  are now done so should be more up by the end of the weekend.

I have already done ZZap and Crash so Amtix had to be done , the holy Trinity  :D

Those are some big files!

I ran one of the pages through my OCR software, converted it down from 13.9MB to 386KB, not too much loss of quality, a little but not a lot as Paul Daniels once said.  It did a reasonable job of reading the text despite the pattern background.
