John Williams - I am currently cropping images of many members of nobility and royalty in order to improve their appearance as thumbnails. These images will mainly focus on their faces or the profiles of their heads in order to improve their appearance as thumbnails. Here is an example of what I am trying to accomplish. I will also be looking for additional images that are in compliance with copyright law. I will also work on the the Windsor family as I am a descendant of the original Windsor family which are not included in the current English royal family who adopted the surname Windsor in 1917 to avoid any anti-German sentiment during World War I since they were mostly German.
