More decks for the Exchange

Post by Christine »

I have three decks for the Exchange. Anyone interested may post a reply and I will upload any or all.

The Hansen Roberts - A beautiful traditional tarot deck.

The International Icon Tarot - A traditional tarot using international street sign inspired icons. Simple in design but stirs the imagination. In color.

The Altenburg Stralsunder (used texture) - A poker style deck for cartomancy. Based on the Austrian court card system.

That Altenburg Stralsunder sounds nice (got a knack for old poker decks). And I would not mind to have an eye to that Traditional you mention. Thx in advance.

I would love the Hanson Roberts haven't had time to scan it yet... I have the Fey, Spiral & Wise Woman if anyones interested... I do number them different so you would have to re-number to compair or load the same spread with different decks.. I use irfanview to rename mine :o)

Thanks and Enjoy!

I already have the International Icon Tarot, but I don't have the back for it. Does your upload have the back in it?

Hi Gisela,

I couldn't find the original back so I did a cut and paste from the icons on the site. Not great, but a deck of cards with no back is like Valentine's Day with no chocolate! If you want the back I have, let me know how to send it.

My Best,
Christine

Hi Marty.

Here's how I would download a deck. It might not be the optimal way, but it works. I'm not sure how familiar you are with some of these steps, so I might give you more detail than you need. Or maybe not enough... :-) For my example, I'll use the Fey Tarot.

1) First, create a new folder on your hard drive, and call it Fey Tarot. This is where we'll put the cards.

2) In The Tarot Zone browser on the left side of the web page, click the Decks & Spreads folder, and then the Deck Exchange page.

3) Now you should see a list of decks. If you want to see the full list, go the the Maximum Results box and empty it, then hit return.

4) Look at the listing for Fey Tarot. Over on the right side of the table, there is a little picture of some binoculars. Click on the binoculars in the same row as Fey Tarot.

5) Now you should see a new, mostly black screen. Near the top it says Download Fey.zip (3987 kb) Click on that message.

6) You should see a dialog box pop up asking you if you want to open or save the file. (This might vary, depending on which browser software you use...) Choose to save the file. Put it in your new Fey Tarot folder.

7) Once the file is downloaded, use Windows Explorer to go to Fey Tarot folder and extract the files from Fey.zip. (If you aren't using Windows XP, you'll probably need WinZip or some other zip-file utility.) Make sure the files are extracted into your new folder.

8) You *might* find that a new folder was created within your folder, depending on how the person chose to create the zip file. That's okay. Just navigate through the folders until you find the one holding the card files. They'll be named 00.jpg, 01.jpg, etc. (Or possibly 00.gif, 01.gif... Or 00.png, 01.png... The file extension may vary, but the card files should always be named 00.*, 01.*, etc.)

9) Okay. Now that you have found the folder holding the card files, do this: Click on the folder icon and then type Ctrl-C to copy the folder to the Windows clipboard. (Hold down the Control key and, while holding it down, hit C...)

10) Now, in Windows Explorer, go to C:Program FilesOrphaleseOrphalese TarotPacks. (I'm assuming you installed the program in the default location.) Click inside the Packs folder and hit Ctrl-V to paste the Fey Tarot folder.

11) That's basically it. If all went well, you should be able to start Orphalese Tarot and open your new pack.

Sorry, but I have to sign off now. If any of this is unclear or doesn't work for you, let me know and I'll try again when I have more time. I'll try to go over uploading a deck too, if you like.
