Hi Redneck;

Your images need to be better for anyone to attempt an identification. Cell phone images are
only good for Spring break selfies, of intoxicated youngsters doing stupid things. Rolling On The Floor Laughing

You should use a scanner, with image editing software. I use PhotoStudio published by ArcSoft,
and PhotoPaint 8, published by CorelDraw.

1) You need images about 3x - 4x lifesize.

2) You also need brighter lighting for the images. A scanner will fix this.

3) Loose the extra black space, it just makes the file size too big, (kilobytes not pixels).

4) Images need good focus, and a scanner will fix that also. Plus after I scan my images I give
a software tweak of 'sharpen' to bring out fine details.

5) Try to keep the image width under 800 pixels. That way viewers will not have to go into the
next room to view your image. Nobody enjoys having to scroll back-and-forth to see something.

I'll try to find an example to post here for you to see....

Hi again Redneck;

Here is a thread you should look at that deals with a gadget that attaches to a smartphone.

She just posted some sample photos of a stamp that are very impressive.
