Support »  [SOLVED] HQ Photos in the scan section?
I was just wondering if I could post the HQ pictures I take in the scan section. As I have not found a scanner big enough to scan my vinyls (well a free one).

Technically you can scan Vinyl on a DIN A4 Scanner, for perfect results make 4 scans (one from each corner) and supercompose them in a good Picture Reworking Programm (eg Photoshop), but that takes time, computer-capacity and skill.
The artwork of Sacrifice (SUI) - On the altar of rock is a compostion of two scans on a normal format scanner, a few milimeters of the top are missing, but I think it worked out allright. The secret is to mellow up the edge were the upper scan ends.

I did the same when I was scanning a lot of vinyl stuff for the first Metal Teasures edition (which had featured mostly vinyl rarities). In those days I was thinking about to buy a big enough scanner to scan the complete Vinyl cover, but this way was to much expensive. So I worked with a normal A4 scanner and it need a lot of work, but I could fixed it really well. I just scanned two halfs from the cover (a few millimeters in the top and the bottom got lost, just always look that you don't cut any logos or titles) and added them to one picture with Photoshop. It really works fine but for sure it will takes a bit of confusing time in the beginning!

Well the scanner I have is lower quality then my camera (by a lot). So I thought taking a picture with my cannon Rebel xs and then cropping it to size would work the same as scanning.
This is mainly because of the size of my scanner It would take around 4-6 scans to do one side.

Here is an example of my camera's quality http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/6633/img3861k.jpg

Hi malinku, I have been away for a couple of days so I am very sorry for not been able to write you a response earlier.
Oldfart and metalhunter gave some good answears. I also scan my vinyls piece by piece, you get the hang of it after a copule of times.

A camera often gives a reflexion on the vinyl from the flash, the details are also not as clear as a scanned image. So let's keep to scans in the "Scan" thread. You can always include your photos when you write the upload-topic (as you did with SOILENT GREEN) for example. (cheers)
