Help needed with making a good picture of minis for this forum. 15 Years, 3 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"

POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : 1999-09-29
The first edition of the first series of mini LPs for the Who (target obis) came with inserts that were pre-punched. A binder and T-Shirt accompanied the release. It is not clear how these were obtained but it seems likely that the small yellow coupon on the obi would have been snipped off and the folder at least was awarded on surrendering the full set of coupons.

Front cover (main) image of VICP-63335 : Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) : The World Became The World
VICP-63335 : 2006-02-22
English language version of the earlier native Italian "L'Isola di niente" on ELP's Manticore label. As with the earlier English rehash of PFM's "Per un amico" the lyrics were for the most part re-written (not translated) by Pete Sinfield of King Crimson.

WPCR-13295 : 2009-01-14

Fifth studio album, featuring Talking Heads only US Top Ten hit, Burning Down The House (including an alternative version as a bonus, and an unfinished outtake of Two Note Swivel).

This version is a reproduction of the limited edition clear vinyl version designed by artist Robert Rauschenberg, who won a Grammy Award for his work.

Front cover (main) image of MHCP-1002 : Santana : Lotus
MHCP-1002 : 2006-06-07

Recorded in early July 1973 this album took nearly a year to make it to streets.

One of the most elaborate record covers ever produced and probably the most elaborate so far to make it to mini LP release. It is nearly impossible to capture the splendour of this on a web site but we shall try...
