Ed - I really like your flower scans. It's nice to see what is growing around everyone's part of the world!

Jerry - I actually loved the quality of scans I got from my 1240. It did a great job at matching colors and as long as things were held very flat on the glass, the scans were sharp. The only thing I disliked about it, was the lack of depth...but most people are not using it to scan shells, insects and plants!

CJ - Where do I preorder that scanner?

In working on the "Lisa challenge", I decided that I needed proper gems for the jewellery. Merely coloring the jewellery looked rather weak. As my wife is an avid collector of rocks, stones and polished semi-precious and precious stones (yes Chris H, on returning from those long trips there's plenty hidden in the pickup), I have a huge collection to choose from.

This is a frog made from sodalite (found mainly in the Kaokoveld and n. Italy).

(For Greg: not bad depth of field for a sub-$100 scanner!)

Here is a collection of semi-precious stones on a postcard sized card. (Feel free to use these in your own work or email me for a higher res jpeg.)

Al - That turned out really well! The colors are great and the depth of field is very good. I can make out the texture of the surface it's placed on.

I wish i had thought of scanning a gem for the "Lisa Challenge"...maybe you can give her some earings or a nose ring

Al, thanks for sharing your collection of semi-precious stones with us -- those may come in handy. Very good scanning technique.

Now, where's your collection of PRECIOUS stones? Sodalite frogs are very nice, but diamonds are ....

Sorry CJ, my wife isn't into jewellery (saves me a bit ), so the precious stuff is still in the original matrix. I'll see if I can find the diamond

Greg, the earring(s) is in place, but I just can't get the nosering's aspect right
