Set Registry help needed: Digital gallery showing inconsistent image sizing

Is anyone else experiencing and issue where the gallery is incorrectly sizing images of coins within the gallery?

Note the gold 8 escudos in the image, they are sized way too small while the 1/2e at the top are large. If I move the 8E to the middle of the gallery the sizing is appropriate again.

Any thoughts from the Set Registry team?

    The digital albums do not scale each coin in true scale size. For the most part, most “holes” are made large enough to show off the detail on each coin. You should click on a coin in a hole, and you then use the + and - to increase or decrease your coin photo to properly fill the hole. Remember to press “ok”, and when done, use the gear icon all the way on the left to show the “Save” button all the way on the left side. Good luck

    Thanks, I suppose I mean that now the size of the images at the back end of the album are smaller on the page than all of the others. If I move that exact coin to an earlier slot on the album the image size increases.

    This is usually an issue with the coin diameter stated in CoinFacts. Please try looking up your individual coins in CoinFacts and see if a diameter in mm is stated. If not, then send the info to PCGS and they will add the correct size to the coin or medal involved in CoinFacts. This will make the medals/coins match their relative sizes. This I have done a lot, and usually it helps.

    Cheers and stay safe.

    I understand that the program uses a default size, unless the particular coin/medal has a CoinFacts entry that states the specific diameter of the coin.

    I have had the same problem and asked several months back.....maybe a year.
    Finally I gave up. At first it worked, then as I added more coins the sizes began to get messed up.
    So, then I thought to reduce the amount and it looked almost right.
    I think the software needs to take into consideration the amount of wording it has to describe the coin too.
    Sometimes the more in the description, the smaller the coin images become. It would really be nice for them to take this software they offer to the next step and make exceptions to allow for various descriptions, sizes and etc....

    Its super nice to be able to have a virtual coin album but, would love a few fixes to make it great.

    If you notice the type set registry I have does show the correct sizes.
    I made comments on each page so you can see what I'm talking about.

    I’ve had the same issue (sometimes shows up in my showcase below). Good
    To know that there may be a possibility though of getting the sizes correctly scaled.
