Default Photo setup

I put my coins on my scanner, put a blue sheet of paper over it, and scan it into Photoshop. Then I crop it and save as a JPEG. Ditto for the inv. side. Sometimes the lighting isn't great, but most of the time it suffices. See my Roman Imperial coin pics under user name Othereal.

Cheers,

Othereal

I also use a scanner. It works very well except on coins that have a high reflief. However, I just bought a new camera and plan to try using it for better quality pictures.

Anything from 300 to 300 D.P.I. should do.

Wink Dino-Lite Micro... & HP-G4050

Well,
I have given up using a camera, unless I buy one that is over $1k and that I cannot do at the moment.
However, I use an HP G-4050 scanner and a Dino-Lite Microscope with led illumination. The scanner I place the 35mm slide frame on the glass for seperation and I place a piece of black paper or foam on the lid.
They come out really nice and I can do several at a time, tweeking each as they are scanned.
The Dino gets really close, excellent clarity, sharpness, color and depth of field. The only negative is that it is one at a time and takes time.
However, it has also shown me some details that I would not have seen otherwise.

I really like the Dino best but I'm also impatient....

Joe
