I use either ___SplitImage ___or the slice feature in ___The Gimp___ to
cut the counters out, then process the cut-out images through
___Imagemagick ___to scale and apply a border (I use ___Excel ___to
build a bat file to do them all at once). You can then use the new 'Add
Multiple Pieces' feature in vassal 3.2 to create multiple counters at
once. Note, to use the 'Add Multiple Pieces' option, you need to rename
the images so that images belonging to the same counter have related
names (e.g. piece1.png and piece1-back.png).
