Thank you Andrew for going into such detail with
so many useful tips. I've only had the borrowed
scanner for a few days, so I'm a bit new to this.
My intention has been to get a good scan at the
scanning/TWAIN stage, and then to use image
software only to reduce dimensions and resolution
to make for correctly-sized images which don't
take too long to download from my Guernsey
numismatic web pages. I've already posted two
nice pages of banknote images, but the coin
images you will see there are rather poor.
It's my intention to post a list of Guernsey items
for sale once I've completed the coin & banknote
listings with a good selection of images. You'll
be able to watch my progress by keeping an eye on
my numismatic pages, reached from my home page below.
I'll let you know when I find a solution to
the problems I outlined.
Regards, Steven Gibbs
