Re: Object scanning

Hi Ogee

I would be very surprised if this is caused by the scanner. The lamp base is not lying flat on the scanner. Try rotating the lamp base 90 and see if the distortion changes. Or better still, scan a piece of graph paper and check that for distortion.

Hope this helps

Ken.

Re: Object scanning

This is rather sick.

I was looking for something to scan and I found this old dried up carpenter ant that I had on my desk for a month or so. Was going to ID it but never got around to it. Moving it to the scanner caused it to come apart so obviously I had to put it back together before posting.

My daughters tell me that since I'm retired I have simply too much time on my hands. Obviously this is not true.

Albatross Tell your daughters that it has given you a lesoon in biology and photoshop and probably patience ( the more important one as it is needed to deal with ones offspring )

Re: Object scanning

Very cool I had read about it but never tried it...so i got the closest thing I had to the scanner..my left hand.
scanned it in hovering over the scanner (not touching the glass)..the only change is that I used the curve to brighten it..the color, clarity everything was there from the get go..
Very interesting.

Re: Object scanning

Again not touching the glass...curve only.
Now this is fun...I'm thinking of throwing my camera away and just running around with my scanner..

Problem with that Lasa is you will need a plug socket

must admit though it is fun, will have to give it another whirl soon

There must be a wireless, battery operated scanner somewhere in the marketplace...

Re: Object scanning

I have done several series of scanned objects over the last 5 years, dried flowers and other stuff. I am always amazed by the fact there is no depth of field at all. One series I did of found objects included a jolly rancher that I printed large enough that the actual candy was about 3 feet long. It held up well, amazing.

Re: Object scanning

Very nice Sweetlight. I like the clarity and the subject matter you chose, not to mention the collage itself.
