Hi Folks,
I've found a few nice Lizzie 1st sixpences recently and need to know how to photograph and present them properly.
Can anyone explain in simple jargon how to get obverse and reverse photos of coins in the side- by-side position that many seem able to do on the forum, and to ensure photos are same size etc.
Thank You
Tom.

I use a program called 'ScreenHunter Free' to snip out the bits of the coin I want and then paste it into 'Paint' - as long as you have a big enough 'canvas' to start with you can then line your two sides of the coin up, and crop it to look tidy.

you could go a step further by

opening powerpoint,   

create a new slide

select a background colour

then copy the image from paint onto the slide

save slide as a jpeg

and it looks nice!  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Ah - but that's probably going to be a bigger image than you would want for this site - by using something like screen hunter you can keep the resolution down to manageable levels - and you can save the image as a jpeg from Paint too Smiley
