(c. 2022) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Wow what an amazing tool Chris Wasshuber from Lybrary.com has created for the community.  If you ever need to show fans of cards in a book, instruction sheets, online or anywhere else Chris has created the perfect tool to use.  It has ESP cards too and a variety of back designs.  And I’m sure if you have a legitimate need Chris would most likely add more designs, he’s that sort of guy ๐Ÿ™‚

The tool is very easy to use and costs nothing – you just have to have a free account at Lybrary.com.  And while you are there you can purchase 100’s of the amazing ebooks that Chris has created over the last 20+ years – he has over 9,000 now.  Chris also has the best ebook search engine on the planet with his Magic Knowledge Base Search – also free to account holders.

Great job Chris and thank-you for providing this amazing tool to the community ๐Ÿ™‚

Effect: Say you are writing a book and are in need of illustrations of cards. For example, you want to show a setup or stack in the form of a card ribbon. Perhaps some cards are face-up, some are face-down. Or perhaps you want to show a fan of cards with some cards protruding from the fan. You could take photos but nicely done illustrations do look better. What do you do if you are not an illustrator and can’t afford to hire one? I have the solution for you, and it is free of charge.

All of these illustrations and much more can now be created very easily and professionally looking right here at Lybrary.com. Login to your Lybrary account, scroll down to the Tools section. There you will find a link called ‘Card Illustrator’.

The Card Illustrator allows you to specify a list of card names, backs, and even ESP cards in five different colors, together with some dimensional information, such as the spacing between them and which cards if any should protrude and by how much, the tool will create a PNG image of what you specified. Copy the image into your editor, make any further changes if you need to, and then include them in your publication.

Particularly interesting is the ability to specify a fan radius that allows you to either make tight fans like the ones you would hold in your hand or wide arches like you would spread on a close-up mat.

This is an extremely powerful tool. I wrote it for a recent publication project I was working on and found it so useful that I decided to make this available to everybody. (To use the tool, you will need a Lybrary customer account, and you will need to be a subscriber to this newsletter.)

If you make particularly cool or interesting illustrations with this tool let me know. I am interested in how the tool is being used.

If you do use illustrations created with this tool, please include a credit or mention of it.
