.... to the Community!

Try taking your pictures under different lighting conditions (sunlight, incandescent or florescent) and using different backgrounds to lay your coins on. They appear to be slightly out of focus, but at least you were able to get them posted.

The first coin looks like a coin that was being "spooned" to be drilled out and made into a ring. On the second coin I cannot tell if a clad layer is missing. When the clad is missing the coin is usually pretty dark as the copper core is exposed.

I appreciate your candidness regarding resizing and downloading pictures. I know it can be frustrating. Been there, done that!

When working with the Image Tutorials and tools here you need to remember to be patient and think things through.

Sorry you are having trouble. Keep practicing is about all the advice I can offer. Good luck!

I certainly appreciate any advice. practice will make me better but don't like feeling like an idiot til then. lol I don't know about doing anything about the shade or if there is something I can do different to keep it the ori in the photos as it is in actuality. these look grey when really they are kind of coppery toned with a dark shade of I don't know but maybe a gray tone too.im off to the other forum to see why these coins are the way thjey are. am going to have to dig deep for patience while I learn. should have started thirty years ago. thank you

This has a lot to do with the lighting and the white balance on your camera. While your naked eye can tell what the color white looks like under different lighting, your camera cannot and needs to be told what white looks like under your lights. What kind of camera are you using to take photos with?

As for the lighting, I would suggest lighting that is as close to "Daylight" as you can get. Look for bulbs that put out between 5000k-6500k. These can be found at Walmart and can fit into normal lamps. This is about the easiest thing that can be done for lighting.

thank you both. need all the education I can get. the coins are dark with a coppery tone which is why I couldn't figure out why they uploaded so light. I will practice a lot.
