Yeh, it could be very handy for resizing sd card images and making images headless.

There goes 'Easy Peasy!'  :'  rofl

Seriously, I'd like to know how it goes.  BTW, the only reason that the image I posted is 14.5 GB is that I originally installed everything on a 16GB card that I had on hand. It would have easily fit on an 8 or even a 4.  As my first foray into the world of Pi and linux, I didn't know that backing up an image requires that all the unused space on a card be included in the backup or I would have chosen more wisely.  B:(

Well I couldn't figure out how to shrink brobin's image and my 32gb card arrived, so I used it. I know overkill! But, now with brobin's help and infinite patience, I have a PiAlexaHub running on my Pi Zero W with a cm19a interface! The only change I made to the image was to add a wpa_supplicant.config file once the image was written to give me headless setup. As brobin reported, It handles the cm19a well. I have a 2.5 A Pi supply.
Brobin, thanks again! :)% >!
