Obtaining Coin Photos?


Recommended Posts

There are several ways, I am assuming you want to take pics of your coins not use picks similar to your coins? So far, I have 90% of my collection photographed.

The first thing I got was a USB microscope, it has variable led lighting, but was grainy for pics and tended to be over exposed (glare). The software came with it and just lined up a shot then took a pic. When I go to add a photo for a coin, just copy/"paste from Clipboard" or use choose image from the "Picture of my Coin" Tab.

Next, I had a digital Canon Rebel, then bought a copy stand and some lens adapters that allows for some macro shots. With this I can use Canon Software to compose the shot, adjust settings in real time, etc.... This Canon app saves the pics to my computer HD. Then just choose the image using "Choose Image".

There are other ways like using a scanner and the "Acquire Image" button.
