OK, here is the revised material. Indeed, it was pain, and I wished 
somebody told me earlier. But, as Peter Jackson once said, "pain is 
temporary, BSD is forever" (or did he say "film is forever"? -- I can't

Full scale artwork (300dpi) = 19.5 (png) and 12.8MB (jpeg):

Smaller thumbnals for previews (75dpi) = 3.7MB:

Even smaller thumbnails (30dpi) = 1MB:

PDF versions for easy printout = 13.2MB:

The "sourcecode" for the graphics = 20MB:
