I have been on a quest for many years to create full-coin photos that can be zoomed-in to see fine details. I finally have created my first such image with "Stack-and-Stitch" method. Take a look here, and don't forget to zoom in!

That's really good! Crashed my cheap *** Edited by Staff | The bad word filter is in place for a reason. Bypassing the filter and making the intended word obvious anyway is completely unacceptable. ***phone, but is really crisp, good detail down to the fine chips forming on some letters! Is this a hosting service or a free program?

EasyZoom is a hosting service. I'm testing it out to see if I want to use them for hosting these high-rez images.

That is really cool! I signed up for the free account and uploaded two images just to see how they look. I'm impressed so far. I'll have to play around with it to see how everything works. I do like that you can zoom in really close and it does not loose any resolution.

Thanks for sharing this

Wow, that's really impressive resolution. The file size is a bit bigger than I'm used to working with....

It actually does really good on zooming without losing resolution. I put a few pics of mine on there works pretty good

That is cool. How neat would it be if CCF had that?

Very impressive image. How many shots did you stack to achieve this?

Oh, and which lens did you use?

The big file (150MB)is actually fairly tough to work with. Many editors and viewers can't handle either the size in pixels OR the size in MB.

This is a composite of 12 images for the matrix panorama, 4 rows of 3 columns. Each of the 12 panorama images was a focus stack of 10 source images, taken using a Nikon objective.

Great results, but far too much work to photograph every coin this way.

I only do simple stacking, and only when absolutely required (for certain small or high-relief coins). Most of the time, just a plain photo will have to suffice, for me.

I'm interested in this technique for the coins I want to document in a single, detailed image rather than with full-coin plus detail shots. The VEDS coin is an example of this, because it benefits from being able to see the whole coin in detail. Not every coin will rise to the level of needing this treatment, but it's now a tool in my toolbox for that sort of work.

edited to add: here is the shot of the VEDS coin I was referring to:

I made this image from 6 stacked panorama photos, so much less work, and it came out pretty good...
