tried again this am Mike. Spread fingers as far as they would go on screen. Images look huge in the phone screen but not when them come over to computer. Oh well I think you get the general color and surface of the coin.
Go ahead and pm them to me and I'll see if I can fix them. When you select the photo on your phone, then click on the email button and an email window will pull up. I email them to my own gmail account. After you hit send, another screen should pull up asking you if you want to send the 'actual size', 'large', 'medium', or 'small'. I always select the medium option which doesn't require any cropping or use of CCF's image optimizer. I simply save the picture on my computer, then click add images on a CCF post and upload them directly to CCF. But pm me what you have and I'll see if I can crop them.
This is for an older version of iPhone but it works the same way for iPhone 6. Notice that he touches the screen spreads his fingers apart multiple times when he wants to zoom in further until it's maxed out. Or you can use the zoom in or out meter at the bottom of the screen. If you want to zoom back out, touch it with two open fingers and close them together. Again you can do this multiple times until zoom out is maxed out.
Even if you zoom in too far, you can also move the iPhone away from the coin until the picture looks right.
But make sure when you email it to yourself that you select 'medium' so that you don't have to monkey with it and upload it directly to CCF.
Another helpful point: take multiple pictures from different angles. Move the coin around in different position under the lamp light and download all of them to your computer so you can view them and decide which are the best.
If you want a good free picture cropping tool download paint.net That's what I use but if you follow my instructions you shouldn't need it for pics from your iPhone.
did everything the you tube said. Tried to send PM to you about not being able to attach images through CCF e-mail. I could also try to text you the images I have on the phone which are pretty much as big as the screen. Spending too much time getting frustrated about computers and photo sharing.
