Thanks for the great FAQ.I have had a good digital camera that I received as a hand me down from a friend. My scanner images have pretty much just sucked (led arm), and i have tried a few quick shots with the camera on my dsk with disatrous results.
My camera has a macro setting, as well as white balance settings.
This FAQ has now sent me on the path towards some decent pictures. I will be experimenting all weekend. Soon I will be able to post good pictures on the net, as well as in moneta!
