Editing photos for use in RailPro can be a pain, especially if you're not used to working with photo editing tools.

SO... we have created an easy to use online tool for Cropping, Resizing, and Converting photos for RailPro users!

RailPro Bitmap Builder

Enjoy!

This tool works in Firefox, Chrome, and MS Edge browsers. It does not work in Internet Explorer.
It also works on smartphones using Chrome or Firefox and lets you take images directly from the camera.

All of the processing is done on the client side which means it is nice and fast.

If you find you are having problems with it, please do a hard refresh of the tool first. (press ctrl+F5 while on the page in your browser.) If you are still having problems, PM me or send an email to billy@pdc.ca

Cheers!

Brent says your browser likely had part of an old version in cache. A crtl+F5 refresh allowed it to properly load the current version.
It's nothing you did wrong.

Glad it's working for you now!!
