Do you need an image - something to put on the naked white space on page 4?
The web is crammed with flashy color graphics, but what's the use, when you (as an amateur desktopper) cannot print and distribute anything but black and white?
The images on this page are well suited for this purpose, and they are free for non-commercial use. For commercial use you need our permission. On our page Chess Diagrams & Fonts you can find a true type font Chess Miscel with chess symbols and pictograms useful for chess DTP. Or you can try our graphic links.
On this page are also 111 free chess icons that can be used as e.g. program icons in Windows. The icons are made by Peter Wong, Australia.
The quality of the originals is considerably better than shown on this page. To save your time resolution and size have been minimized.

All downloadable files are compressed.
Either compressed TIFF-format, which can be read by most relevant programs, or ZIP, that must be unzipped.
Consequently they'll use a lot more memory than just the filesize when loaded by your image processing program.
For most images you can see width, height, resolution, file format and size of the compressed file.
W: Width in mm. H: Height in mm. PPI: Resolution. Format: File format (*.TIF, *.PCX etc.). Size: Size of compressed file.
