  • It looks like the lighting. I take crappy pics too but I'm learning. Keep practicing.
  • Hi jfoot13, I don't take pictures. It drove me up the wall trying to get a decent
    picture of a coin. Then I realized something. I have never been a picture person
    my whole life. Why would I expect to stick with a bunch of digital photo nonsense
    when I've never been a photography bug to begin with?

    I sent a few of my favorite coins to a board member to photo them for me. Also,
    have you tried scanning? The main problem people have with pictures on a forum
    is getting them to a host site and then recalling them. You obviously can do that.

    Here's a picture of a 1958 Franklin that Bob Goodman did for me.

    wow that is a beautiful coin... Didn't I read he was publishing a book? I'm the same way I never had the photo bug but in the BST aspect it sure helps having the capability to send an image. I did try working with stamps for a while but being color blind with all the color variations on the earlier stamps it got to be fustrating rather than fun so I strayed towards coins.. as far a scanning I did try it but I wasn't happy with the results.. BTW stamps do seem to work better with the scanner than coins, I assume it has something to do with the 2 vs 3 demensional aspect and light ... In any event I made a mistake posting this here and didn't know how to delete it.. I appologize for posting OT..
    thanks for you help
