      Re: Object scanning

      I came across this thread when I joined the forum last week. Remembered how I played around with using the scanner a while ago. and then couldn't find the image I was after. Well found it today. I scanned the rose and the background separate, played around with the layers and the tones.

        A somewhat dried out flower. I think there is some depth, pleased with the results. Scanned at 150 dpi color-photo mode. A black cover sheet use used. The image was enhanced some and the background was flooded with black.

          Friis, I really like yours. It looks like a cyanotype.

                    Go to DeviantArt.com Search for polaroid borders. There are ton of good brushes on there. Miss Palms also has some nice links and she's smarter than the average bear.

                      Did this one a few years ago.

                          Nope; just my HP All-in One (psc 2110v). I just wish they can develope a camera that can give you details that a scanner can, but I guess the scanner can give you the details because the object absolutely doesn't move and the light is the best that can be done. Still, if they can make a scanner camera (I know all the pet projects out there with not so good results; lol) that can scan both quickly and accurately, we would be in nirvana.

                            I know I have added far more than my fair share of comments to this thread. Just a few hints, tightly written and wrapped in a bow.
                            1. The beauty and the nature of the beast ie; scanner as it has "0" depth of field therefore sharp from beginniing to end. Try adding frosty types of material in the air during the scan. I like to use a piece acetate sprayed with hairspray. I also sometimes put black or white orn any other colors where I want them. I have a small section of my flickr storage but this truly is a direction that if you take the turn down the road who knows where you might end up. It has great potential.

                              I sprayed a little soapy water between two sheets of acetate and then applied a gradient, black-rgb-white. Thanks for the tip.

                                  This may have been discussed before, but I could not find an older thread in my search.

                                  Anyway, I noticed some of Gerry Monaghan's scanned flowers in the gallery and I posted some images I have made using scanned shells. Does anyone else scan objects like flowers, leaves....bugs? ...

                                  I was curious if someone could fulfill my curiosity regarding this subject - I have a scanner, but I don't have a decent mirror to try it out with (as mine are all mounted to the wall).

                                  Put a negative on to be scanned, but instead of using the light which comes with your scanner, instead...

                                  I may have to scan an image that is in the 25x21 area. I only have the standard 8.5x11. The one option that I know of is to scan it in pieces and then put it back together on PS. One thing I have read about that though is that you should scan each piece of the image in the same direction and with the...

                                  Help scanning photos with silver in them!

                                  HI.

                                  I have some old prints I’d like to work on that have silver in them. Whenever I scan them the silver creates a stippled white haze over the darker portions of the image.

                                  I have Katrin’s book and have actually spoken with her. I was fortunate enough to ask her the...

                                  How can you tell if your scanner is behaving?

                                  Hi

                                  A friend of mine gave me a BearPaw 1200TA scanner that he bought and never used.

                                  I am very new to scanning images for composition and I have never used scanners in the past so I am not current on how to use them correctly.

                                  I have never paid much attention...
