Help needed with making a good picture of minis for this forum. 12 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi,

need some help or advice of how to make the best possible picture of the minis for display here on this site.
I have a scanner but I'm not satisfied with the result.
When I make a picture with my digital camera (Sony DSC-V1) I have the problem the flash is shown in the picture.

Who can help ? Answer here or to my home snake@home.nl

thanks,

Eric.

I am no expert but, for the mini LPs I use a scanner and I actually bought a new printer/scanner for that purpose - I got an HP on sale. For boxes I use a Cannon digital camera. I set the flash to off and take pictures in daylight, or use a cheap clip-light clipped to a chair. Then I open the picture in photoshop and crop the picture to get rid of the excess space in the picture around the edge of the box.

Thanks,

I now make the pictures at daylight and they improve a lot.
I make them with 5 mb for 1 picture and reduce the space by using the (free) programm PIXRESIZER.
If you take a look at the Slade and the Damned titles, I think they are usefull.

As far as editing the image once you've captured it.

Try one or more of these:
http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/pixelbasedwin/tp/freephotoedw.htm

Here are the steps to the process so you need one that does these reasonably well (most of them should easily do all of them).
1) "Rotate" the image so it's orientated correctly (by degrees)
2) "Select" the part of the image (usually a rectangle) that you want to "Crop"
3) "Crop" the image
4) "Resize" it (for the minilps site that's usually 600pixels width max)
5) Save the image as a jpeg at 50% "quality"
