Yes, before I alerted the publishers. Because if it was impossible it wasn't quite as much of an issue.

the image files... he has made the images to ONLY work WITHIN his software...

and yes, I unzipped the deck images, and tried to open them... you can't.
I can and did open them.They are extremely small - but they open up fine.

Just so you know.

They could be used in Orphalese, I bet. (though you would have to renumber all the cards.) And that is GOOD software - and cheap !

Thanks for that, gregory...but I don't need Orphalese,
as I already have a really good pro tarot program by Matrix software.
...but that was sweet of you to let me know...

I thought I said "thank you" for letting me know that...
...that is great that you were able to open them...I have since done that too!

I don't think it is that important since a person can take any deck and just
scan it themselves and have the digital images on their hard drive if they
wanted to... to as many decks as they want.

In fact they can find a lot of full deck images online anyway...so it doesn't really matter now.

I think this guy has taken most of the downloading off of his pages...now
you have to buy his software to get most of the downloadable decks.

If this person will go so far to pirate the decks, why wouldn't he just well have pirated the software that goes along with it?

I believe his correspondences to some o our members here show that he has zero credibility.
