I've used my scanner for a few projects, as photos don't always give this effect. I did this one some time ago for someone who wanted a feather for a business logo.

lol. i love the 'hairy winged butterfly' it also got me to thinking; anyone ever do a scan of a wig? might make for a good source of 'hair' textures.

Craig, I have a collection of scans of my own hair (I have very long hair so it is not so awkward a task as it may seem hehe) for that purpose... and the textures I get come up really well with straight hair, tight curls and braids can be a tad tricky tho.

Re: Object scanning

This uses a color copier, but it's the same concept (might need to register in order to see). Some beautiful images:

Re: Object scanning

Cool thread. Here are a couple I played with for another forum. I think I posterized the flowers, and the other one is an animal print hand towel scanned and then embossed along w/ some other filters I can't recall, but I thought it might make an interesting background sometime.

I like the idea of using the scanner for a camera. I just never get around to exploring it further. Here's tutorial type article

Re: Object scanning

I was surprised by the distortion when I scanned this lamp base...it is made of an aluminium alloy and was made with precision...all the holes are round not elliptical..anyone know if you can correct for this before you scan?
