Need some work done? Post a Project Today
I have a set of approximately 20 scanned files each containing multiple (20-30) images of coins per sheet. I need to have the images of individual coins split out into new separate files.
The separation must follow the priniciple of (1) main image (obverse and reverse in one image; (2) obverse alone; (3) reverse alone. I need to have each image to be saved in two formats: (1) PNG with transparent background; (2) JPG
(obviously), with solid white background.
As the end result I am expecting a total of approx 6000 images of approx 1000 unique coins (so as you figure 6 images per coin):
1). main image - obverse + reverse in one photo (JPG solid white background)
2). main image - obverse + reverse in one photo (PNG, transparent background)
3). obverse (JPG solid white background)
4). obverse (PNG, transparent background)
5). reverse (JPG solid white background)
6). reverse (PNG, transparent background)
The project requires basic photo editor skills. I recommend using Photo.net (freeware). I will NOT accept any justifications driving the price related to the need to use Photoshop or any other high-end photo editing software.
This project consists of basic tasks which are expected to be accomplished with standard / freeware tools.

To all bidders and those who requested a clarification, I am providing some more detail on the project.
Sorry if there was any lack of clarity initially, this is my first project here.
The precise requirements are:
21 JPG images containing obverse / reverse pictures of coins, approx 50 pairs per sheet/image.
Each obverse/reverse pair is marked with the catalog number. Some coins only have one image (either an obverse or reverse). In total there are 1000 unique coins in the catalog.
An example of one of the 21 files is attached.
For each unique coin pair in the catalog I would need to have:
1). main image: obverse + reverse in one photo (JPG solid white background)
2). main image: obverse + reverse in one photo (PNG, transparent background)
3). obverse separately (JPG solid white background)
4). obverse separately (PNG, transparent background)
5). reverse separately (JPG solid white background)
6). reverse separately (PNG, transparent background)
Each of the images must be saved under the file name corresponding to the catalog number with the obverse / reverse images following a naming convention of <catalog number + O/R.JPG/PNG> where O/R would correspond to "obverse" or "reverse". Since there is approximately 1000 catalog items, the output should result in approx. 6000 images with a set of 6 for each coin (unless there is no reverse or obverse in the original table).
You can disregard my note on the recomended software package. As I said, this is my first post and was written in a bit of a hurry. Obviously, it is up to the professional to choose the appropriate tool.
A note on timing: this is not an urgent task at all and has normal priority.
Thank you all in advance, I hope for a good cooperation! Please, let me know if any more detail will be needed.
