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"

BoxesWho :

Over the years a number of promotional boxes have been released for "The Who". These have included "Manufacturer", "Disk Union" and "Indeterminate Origin".

Here is a selection...

Front cover (main) image of DU-SP146.2 : Bowie, David : Space Oddity Box
DU-SP146.2 : 2007-03-07

This box was issued by Disk Union as part of the 3rd of their 3 box releases in the early 2007. You did not need to buy boxes one (Ziggy Stardust Box and Promo Obis) or two (Low Box and Promo Obis) in order to receive the Space Oddity Box. It came with Let's Dance Box and Promo Obis.

 
Front cover (main) image of VICP-5442,3,4 : Emerson, Lake + Palmer : First True Japanese Mini LP Rock Release
VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21

The first three Emerson Lake and Palmer albums (self titled, Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition) are arguably the first true Rock Mini LPs. They were released on 21st September 1994.

These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.

The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.

Front cover (main) image of UICY-93013-38 : Rolling Stones (The) : In the 60's
UICY-93013-38 : 2006-03-16

2006 (reprinted at least once) release of Stones albums from the earliest days up to 1975. Does not include the early 70s releases.

Each album included a collector card. The backs of the cards, when laid side by side, formed the cover image of "Their Satanic Majesties Request".

LIST-007 : 2006-02-07

This is a work in progress project and due to its size it will take some time to finish.

Book cover images from different countries are welcome (or the ones included but with better image resolution).
